Congratulations, Lebanon Valley Gridders 



Team Trips Tampa; 
Then Troops Tropics 

ROYALLY ENTERTAINED 

palmer Chief Souvenir Hunter; Girls 
Entertain A La Leap Year. 

I'he team left Annville Sunday the 
twenty-second and arrived at Tampa 
Monday evening. The Junior League 
had planned a reception which worked 
in royal fashion. At the station were 
waiting six automobiles and a band. In 
each of the cars were two beautiful 
Tampa girls, one acting as chauffeur, 
the other as footman. They were par- 
aded all around the city, cheered by 
crowds of people standing on the curbs 
waiting to see the boys who played such 
a wonderful game against Fordham. 
The parade ended at the city hall, where 
Coach Frock and the two captains were 
introduced to Mayor Chancey of Tampa 
and Coach "Nash" Higgins of Tampa 
University. Frock was presented with a 
;ey to the city. 

The weather being warm, Frock called 
the reception short and gave the boys i 
stiff workout that night under tne iiood- 
lights of the University of Tampa Sta- 
dium. 

Bartolet says that after coming from 
such cold weather, with its frozen rivers, 
blinding snow storms, and icy winds, the 
boys soon found themselves perspiring 
under that Florida sun. As a matter of 
fact Lascari, after the second day, was 
complaining of a mild case of facial sun- 
burn. 

After the nocturnal workout of the

Anniversary Plans 

Laid By Delphians 

President Gingrich Appoints Com- 
mittees For Dance. 



The Delphian girls held a short busi- 
ness meeting Jan. 7 at 7 o'clock to settle 
business matters and make Anniversary 
preparations. 

The president accepted two pledges, 
Alice Mary Richie and Mildred Hauss 
as members of the society. They were 
unable to take the oath of membership 
at the last meeting. After the formali- 
ties the meeting became an informal busi- 
ness meeting. 

The society planned to entertain the 
new members at a tea on the following 
Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 P. M. Sarah 
Peg Lupton and Claire Adams were put 
in charge of the refreshments. The next 
matter of business was to start a drive

President Speaks In 
Harrisburg Church 

"BEYONDNESS" IS TOPIC 



Dr. Lynch Preaches At New Year's 
Eve Watch Night Service. 



Several hundred people heard Doctor 
Clyde A. Lynch's sermon New Year's 
Eve at the community watch night serv- 
ice held in Market Square Presbyterian 
Church in Harrisburg. The services were 
sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. 

Choosing "Beyondness" as his topic, 
Dr. Lynch defined that term as "our per- 
ceptions of that which transcends our 
immediate experience in space and time 
and "as spiritual insight and spiritual 
foresight which include our awareness of 
God and the spiritual universe that im- 
pinges on a physical universe." 

In discussing the affairs of the day 
Dr. Lynch declared Nationalism to be 
the chief rival of the Christian Church 
today. The Italian invasion of Ethiopia 
is being condemned by the social con- 
science and is an indication of our ad- 
vancement. "We should not stultify 
ourselves by the silly reasoning that we 
are being carried along by a fatalistic 
course of events that will finally sweep 
us into our ocean, of destiny wholly de- 
termined by forces external to our- 
selves," he said. 

Dr. Lynch condemned the seriousness 
of alcoholic beverages in a manner not 
often emphasized. " 'Beyondness' in the 
animal world means that life will not 
stay put. To be satisfied with the status 
quo in a changing environment means

Clionian Meeting 



The Clio meeting held Tuesday, 
Jan. 7 in Clio Hall was a short busi- 
ness meeting. Anniversary expenses, 
nomination of officers and plans for 
a leap-year party were discussed. This 
is something to think about boys ! 



State Teachers Meet at 
Capital In December 

L. V. C. MEN PROMINENT 



Dr. Lynch Elected To Post; Other 
Professors Active. 



A group of our faculty attended a

A. Lynch, Dr. G. A. Richie, Prof. S. O. 
Grimm, Dr. S. H. Derickson, Dr. O. E. 
Reynolds. Miss Mary E. Gillespie, Dr. 
P. A. Wallace, Prof. D. C. Carmean,

dent of the Division on Higher Educa- 
tion for the year 1936. Dr. Reynolds 
was elected Secretary and Treasurer of 
the Division of College Teachers of Edu- 
cation for 1936. 

To the musical division Miss Gillespie 
spoke on the subject of "Integrated 
Programs in tlie junior High School." 
Dr. Wallace gave a luncheon speech to 
the English division, the theme on which 
he spoke was "Peaks, Passes and Poets." 

The Lebanon' "V.iley College alumni 
were very active at the meeting. Of 
eight presidents during the year 1935, 
two were L. V. C. gradautes. Paul E. 
Witmeyer of Shamokin in the northern 
district, and Ray Light of Cornwall in 
the southern district. Addresses were 
made by our alumni in several divisions.

High School division, E. E. Knauss ad- 
dressed the Mathematics division, C. C.

L. V. C. Students at 
Large Convention 

Y., L. W. R. REPRESENTED 



Journey To Meeting Of Student Vol- 
unteer Movement In Indiana. 



During the Christmas vacation, a 
group of three students with Dr. and 
Mrs. Stonecipher journeyed over snow- 
bound roads to represent Lebanon Val- 
ley College at the twelfth Quadrennial 
Convention of the Student Volunteer 
Movement at Indianapolis, Indiana. 
These delegates represented various 
organizations of the campus. Irma Kief- 
fer represented the Y. W. C. A., Louis 
Straub the Y. M. C. A., and Harold 
Beamesderfer the Life Work Recruit 
organization. 

The program of the convention was in 
three main divisions: platform hours

Important Business 

Discussed By Players 

Plan For Production Of One- Act 
Plays Soon. 



The regular monthly meeting of the 
Wig and Buckle Club was held Tuesday 
evening, with Harold Phillips, president, 
presiding. The treasurer's report was 
presented and Mr. Phillips spoke briefly 
upon the marionette show activities. It 
was agreed to postpone production of 
one-act plays until the second semester. 
Among the plays tentatively selected 
are: "Where The Cross Is Made", Eu- 
gene O'Neill; Frederic Lemaitre, Clyde 
Fitch; "The Man Who Married A 
Dumb Wife", A. A. Milne; "Riders To 
The Sea, J. M. Synge; a two-act piece 
concerning a woodchopper by Moliere. 
The plays will be student-directed and 
offer excellent opportunities for acting 
and for experimental work in lighting 
and makeup. 

Several suggestions were brought be- 
fore the members for consideration. It 
was pointed out that the roster includes 
quite a few members who are inactive. 
Although all applications for member- 
ship are accepted it was recommended 
thai inactive members should be sub- 
ject to compulsory resignation at the 
end of a year by action of the executive 
council. The suggestion met the approval 
of the club and will be further con- 
sidered. 

The creation of a Wig and Buckle 
Library with books on acting, makeup, 
etc., and an album of production snap- 
shots and newspaper clippings was also 
discussed. The possibility of holding a 
closed formal dance at the end of the

Soph Hop Tonight 
Elaborate Affair 

PLANNED IN NAVY MOTIF 



Couples Will Meet On Quarterdeck 
Of A. H. S. At Eight. 



With all hands once more back on the 
job, the sophomore class will hold their 
annual hop this evening at 8 o'clock in 
the Annville High School gymnasium — 
a very fitting way, indeed, to renew festi- 
vities after the long vacation. 

Although it is an annual affair, this 
year's hop will be novel in many ways. 
First of all, from all evidence, it looks 
as if the sophs have gone extremely 
"nauty" on us. This has been indicated 
quite clearly in the programs they .have 
issued — a life preserver bearing tlje title 
of "SS Sophomore," inside of which the 
officers and committee members who 
worked hard to achieve success in this 
venture are rewarded by receiving titles 
appropriate to those members of a ship. 
The decorations in the gym, too, will 
be symbolical of the navy — flags, life 
preservers, port holes and brass bells. 

One outstanding feature of their plans, 
however, is the fact that they have pro- 
cured Ira Bowman's orchestra, which 
previously appeared on the L. V. cam-

L Y. Flying Dutchmen 
Win Holiday Fracas 

U. OF TAMPA DOWNED 6-0 



Kress Scores To Win First L. V. 
Intersectional Game. 



Lebanon Valley College's "Flying 
Dutchmen" defeated the University of 
Tampa in a gruelling football game on 
Christmas Day by a score of 6 to o. 

'1 he team wearing white jerseys and 
out-weighing the Tampans more than 
ten pounds to the man, pushed over the 
lone touchdown in the first 10 minutes 
after a 75-yard march down field. There- 
after, it was a bitter battle of frustrated 
touch-down hopes and vicious tackling. 

Lebanon Valley launched its touchdown 
drive after an exchange of punts in the 
opening minutes. On the first play, 
Kress slashed through for io yards and 
a first down on L. V.'s 35 yard marker. 
Thereafter the blue and white attack was 
not stopped until Kress bounded over 
the Tampa goal line. 

Twice the drive faltered but only 
momentarily. Each time Kress faded 
back and chucked passes squart.lv into 
the hands of receivers. The first fell 
into the arms of Tindall and went for 
21 yards. The second, a five yarder, 
went to Fridinger and gave the Dutch- 
men a first down on Tampa's 21 yard 
line. 

Tindall then broke off right tackle 
for 11 yards and Kress negotiated the 
remaining 10 in two plays. Kniley's 
placement kick for extra point was wide. 

Excepting the vicious tackling during 
the remainder of the game there was 
little that was spectacular. Little Rudy 
Rodr iguez, Tampa's ball carrying ace, 
managed to get loose once on a 22-yard 
jaunt but it came while the Spartans 
were parked deep in their own territory. 

Twice the Spartans threatened but 
they were easily stopped by the Dutch- 
men, once on a fumble, again by a loss 
of ball on downs. 

Ken Hance became the center of at- 
traction during the latter part of the 
game. - Having recently played on the 
Spartan team and naturally being known 
by the Tampa fans, his name was called 
in a "We want Hance" that could hardly 
be ignored. He was kept from the start-

Life Work Recruit News 



On Sunday evening, Jan. 5, Adam 
Bigler journeyed to Reading to de- 
liver the evening message in the 
Salem United Brethren Church, 
where Rev. C. Beamesderfer is pas- 
tor. Adam and Harold Beamesder- 
fer, representing the college recruits, 
together with the recruits of the 
church, presided over a broadcast 
service. Mr. Bigler spoke on the 
subject, "The Little Things of 
Life." 

Theodore Loose gave an interest- 
ing talk over radio station WRAW 
on the evening of December 24, on 
the subject, "The Work of the 
Young Men's Christian Association of 
Lebanon Valley College."

Let's Get This Straight 

The Vox Populi article appearing in the Dec. 19 edition of La Vie Col- 
lecu:nne has evoked a good deal of response. Be that as it may, we feel chat we 
have been misrepresented in the matter and there are several points we should 
make ciear. 111 the iirst place, no editorial appeared in the laist issue of this paper. 

It is a policy of La Vie as be.itting our right to call ourselves a newspaper to 
print articles submitted to us from outside sources for publication, so long as they 
are legitimate expressions of opinion. Such articles are printed under three head- 
ings, it they pertain to the paper personally they are headed "Letters to the Editors". 
If they are 111 the form of poetry or other literary forms they are headed "Contri- 
butors' Box", if they are of a critical or editorial nature they are headed "Vox 
Populi". Any articles not so headed and not accredited to other sources are reg- 
ular La Vie material and are written by our regular start members under assign- 
ment. 

We should like our reading public to remember that our editorials appear 
directly below our mast-head 011 page two, in a double column width, arid without 
any other heading other than a title appropriate to their subject. 

As to Vox Populi, if there is any electing of a representative to be the voice 
of the people that is a matter entirely without the scope of La Vie Collegienne. 



Congratulations 



To our football team and their coach who came through so nobly to win the 
first intersectional game that Lebanon Valley has ever participated in, the La Vie 
Collegienne joins with the rest of the school in offering our somewhat belated 
congratulations. As is pointed out elsewhere in this issue, the boys proved them- 
selves by other means than by their actual football playing that they are fitting 
representatives oi the college. May we add our particular felicitations to the team 
for their manly and gentlemanly conduct at all times during the sunny southland. 
Fellows, we're mighty proud of you. 



Our news editor, Louis Straub, has lain down on us for the first time by 
contracting a case of the mumps. He is enjoying a pre-examination rest in the 
college infirmary lolling around in a nice soft bed, so they tell us (the mumps is 
contagious, you know). His incapacity has caused the enactment of a rule by the 
La Vie editors to the effect that no staff member may get sick and go to bed 
without first dropping an advance notice in our contribution box in the Library. 
However, we'll forgive you, Louis, if you promise not to miss any of those nice, 
nice exams that they have been posting notices about in the last few days. We'll 
be seeing you, as soon as it's safe!

death. The animals that have survived 
are those that ever have obeyed the urge 
to go forward. In man God has re- 
vealed himself more significantly. The 
greatest indictment against alcoholic 
beverages is that they weaken and de- 
stroy these certain inhibitions that have 
been acquired only after many years of 



Christian history. The restraints of the 
personality are weakened, the animal 
urges of the individual are free to as- 
sert themselves with frightful conse- 
quence. 

"How long will a disillusioned public 
and the Christian conscience tolerate the 
high-powered ads that fill newspapers 
and magazines with the intent of stimu- 
lating drinking? What is said of the 
ethics of the press that sells its birth- 
right for, the large sums of money that 
such advertising provides?" 



FACULTY NOTES

RUDY 

Tuesday, December 17 — Took Hazel to 
the Astor. Saw picture — John, The For- 
yotteit Man. Hazel sure holds a wicked 
hand. 

Friday, December 20 — Hoofed it at 
the Christmas Brawl last night. Tripped 
a few bars with "Legs." My English is 
atrocious since that engagement with 
Hazel. Left for home with my trunks. 

VACATION 
Tuesday, December 24 — Spent Christ- 
mas Eve with "VeL" She certainly is a 
true-blue, all-white, lovely, simply deli- 
cious maiden, but there is something — . I 
hardly know what to say. But — well — 
skip it. 

Wednesday, December 25 — Received 
$100 as Christmas present from Uncle 
Abner. Spent it at Intercollegiate Ball 
escorting my old friend Judy. If Uncle 
Ab would ever know what I spent the 
money for! But did I ever have a good 
time! Lou Gillan was there with Kirk- 
patrick. 

Wednesday, January 1, 6 A, M. — 
Whoopee! Me and Judy were — shele- 
b rating — 

Monday, January 6 — Back again in 
the same old grind. Didn't give any 
Christmas presents, but the other boys 
sure loosened the purse strings! Edgar 
got a crocheted tie from his ball and 
chain. Bud Rehrig tells me he wrote to 
lioinaine from Florida promising her a 
swell Christmas present, but is holding 
off. Wants her gratitude to reach high 
tide on February 22 — Delphian. One 
window smashed in snowball fight at 
dorm. Also one marksman fanned our 
star cellist's posterior with one of the 
icy globules. She was seen later puffing 
icicles from the bottom of a tree. Oh! 
Krony just told me he walked from Leb- 
anon to Ephrata to see Isabel last Wed- 
nesday. Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys 
are marching.

Heard about a scavenger party at

dad's artificial dentures and Bud climbed 
a tree for a bird nest and then almost 
lifted an old geezer's wig. An old pal 
of mine, "Wallop 'em" Wally, drove 
Lillian Zubroff back. She tells me he sure 
knows how to tear off the mileage. Jack- 
ie got another letter from Muhlenberg 
the first day back. Who said slavery 
is abolished? Emma Mary — and the mu- 
sic goes — missed a Princeton— round 
and round — trip with George. Learned 
to play — and the music goes — monopoly. 
Heard Marianne — round and round— was 
so used to late rising she had to be shoed 
by Grove this morning. Leap year, boys! 
On your guard.

them.

iu re the Christmas holidays resulted in 
a\c urst v alley viccory of the season as 
the l^lue ana vv hite uasketeers snowed a 
uecitied improvement in handing the 
r-liiiaueiphia College of Pharmacy a 41- 
*j ueieat. L. \ . C. swept into a 15-0 
ieaii in tne lirst ten minutes of play and 
never was threatened by the uruggists 
throughout the one-sided contest. 

* * * * 

All of the Eastern Fennsy cage loop 
teams opened the season last night ex- 
cept the Gettysburg .outlets, title-nolders 
for the past four successive years. This 
year the C-burgers seem to be less firm- 
ly entrenched in their high place as the 
top team of the league tnan at any time 
biiice the inception of the seven-team or- 
ganization. 

* * * * 

To date, the strength of the various 
quintets seems to be somewhat of a 
question, with practically all of the loop 
outfits suifering heavily through the loss 
oi last years' stars. Each club, at the 
same time, seems to have a wealth of 
new candidates from which to develop a 
pennant-contender, and the flag race 

should be one of the best in years.

In addition to last night's Valley-Ur- 

sinus contest, the league's opening night 

saw Albright encounter Franklin and 

Marshall at Lancaster and Drexel meet 

Muhlenberg at Philadelphia.

LYRUM URBANUM 

1 sing no praiseful lays of verdant pas- 
tures, 

Nor chant the beauty of consummate 
passion, 

Nor sorrow o'er some trampled asters. 
1 hate these things ! I scorn their fashion 
Of cabalistic, meaningless tinkles. 

I hate all their puny aesthetic imag'ry; 
Give to me strength, and confusion, and 
clamor, 

And squalor, and lust, and civilized 
savagery, 

And glamour, and ash-cans — execrable 
grammar, 

And faces with tense anxious wrinkles ! 

Give me the city, the vortex of human 
desire, 

The raucous caucophonic voice of the 
masses, 

The crowds and the smoke and the cruel- 
ness and treacherous mire, 

The glitter and grime and the conflict of 
classes, 

And Holy things mingled with infamy. 

The people, and gears, and fears among 
men, 

The skywardy-staggering steel of their 
towers, 

The mad rush of men to their myriad 
ends 

Are reechoing chords of a thunderous 
power 

In a strident and terrible symphony!

ing line-up on account of a mid-season 
injury that had to be considered for 
fear of aggravation. However he was 
sent in the latter part of the game and 
his former team mates became extreme- 
ly playful. Rough and vicious tackling 
on the parts of both teams became the 
order of the day. "Red" Cox, Tampa's 
fullback was the only man, however, so 
injured as to be carried off the held. 
Later, the game had to be held up in 
order to enable "Pete" Klipa to regain 
a proper decorum after having been sat 
on by no less than five Tampans. 

The count in first downs was nine to 
six in the blue and white favor. The 
Dutchmen gained 142 yards from rush- 
ing against 118 for Tampa. L. V. com- 
pleted three out of 10 passes for 43 
yards. Not one of Tampas six aerials 
was completed. 



Warren F. Mentzer 

Marries Marie Shadle 



". . . . Those wedding bolls are break- 
ing up that old gang of mine!!" If you 
pass the Men's dorm, you will hear the 
melody and tune of these sorrowful 
words. For, has it not been voiced 
abroad that Adam G. Bigler was to be 
joined in matrimonial ties? But, to top 
off this incident, news was just received 
from Dayton, Ohio, that Rev. Warren 
F. Mentzer was married to a Valley 
View lass on the evening of Jan. 7. 
Warren was our Y president last year, 
and was one of the outstanding figures 
on the campus. He is now a student in 
the Bonebrakc Theological Seminary, 
where he and his bride, Miss Marie 
Shadle, will reside for the next few 
months. The students of L. V. C. join 
with the staff of the La V11-; in wishing 
him a long and happy married life. The 
question remains, who will be next??? 



Team Trips Tampa; 

Then Troops Tropics 



{Continued From Fage 1) 



lirst night, the team were the guests at 
a wrestling match. Each member was 
called into tiie ring and introduced intii- 
vidually to the sports fans amidst a 
great ovation. 

Early Tuesday morning, after break- 
fast (which included delicious Florida 
orange juice), a bus took them sightsee- 
ing. They visited all the magnificent and 
worthwhile sights of Tampa and vicin- 
ity, including the bathing beach at 
Clearwater, incidentally, .John VV aimer 
was the only one in the bunch who would 
not resist the temptation to swim in the 
Gulf of Mexico. He accomplished this 
feat the morning after the game. Ca- 
meras were always busy snapping scenes 
such as orange and grapefruit groves, 
landscapes dotted with palm trees, and 
wide stretches of green lawns. Here 
again Wahner excelled, lime and again 
he dashed madly from the crowd to picK 
oranges, gather sea shells, or uproot 
strange plants. Tuesday evening the 
boys attended a moving picture as guests 
of the management. 

On Wednesday came the game. It was 
a perfect day for a football game, 
slightly cloudy and not too warm. We 
will not waste time here in describing 
the game, as that is in another article. 
That night a dance was held in honor of 
the team, where all manner of courtesies 
and privileges were granted our team 
with regards to dancing partners. The 
girls were the ones to do the cutting in 
(an old southern custom, it seems), 
while the boys from Lebanon Valley 
were the only ones allowed to cut in as 
far as cutting in on the part of the 
males was concerned. That night when 
the dance was over the boys eventually 
retired to their palatial quarters in the 
hotel, realizing that the last night in 
Florida had passed. 

The team left the following day at 
noon for home, while Coach and Mrs. 
Frock remained to spend a few more 
days in this wonderland. 

It has been said that John Wahner 
brought back four large cartons of sou- 
venirs, the results of wild buying sprees 
in the five and tens of Tampa. Every 
chance he had he gathered souvenirs, the 
most notable being two crocodiles which 
he kept in the bath tub in his room at 
the hotel. We hope they live, John. 

We are sure that the boys enjoyed 
their trip south. We feel proud of them 
for winning the game. Perhaps we 
should feel more proud of them for their 
commendable conduct. They represented 
our school in the best possible manner, 
conducting themselves as gentlemen at 
all times. Realizing the temptation to 
do otherwise, may we congratulate them 
for their conduct.

Your most humble and obedient ser- 
vant thought it appropriate that his 
present column should take the form of 
"Selections from Holiday Headings," and 
will proceed with his design, despite the 
effrontery of assuming that What ap- 
peals to his gluttonous mind will be sa- 
vory also to those of his estimable read- 
ers. 



Says the Marquise in Chesterton's 
The Judgment of Dr. Johnson'. 

"I sometimes think that when the two 
swords clash, they are only the two 
blades of the shears of Fate. Perhaps 
each blade of a pair of scissors fancies 
it is fighting the other to the death; hut 
in truth they are in a greater hand, used 
together to a single end." 

And Dr. Johnson himself: 

"I have generally found patriotism to 
be the last refuge of a scoundrel." 

The latter recalls a little opus written, 
I assure you, in an extremely anti-belli- 
cose frame of mind: 

Whistles and bells a patriot stir. 

Dirges and knells a hero inter; 

Cyclically lust, 

Sin, avarice, and greed 

Grind him to dust, 

W hence shall succeed 

A fraternal breed; 

Whistles and hells for a noble man, 

Dirges and knells for a gracious clan.

er of that remarkable Hist. 36 text, His-

of Well's Outline of History. Upon 
searching through the files it was dis- 
covered that the latest borrower was 
none other than Prof. Lunt. The libra- 
rian phoned him explaining her predica- 
ment: 

"We have searched everywhere in the 
history section, Prof., and cannot locate 
it." 

"Look on the fiction sheW," was Mr.

Practice Meetings To Prepare For 
Nearing Season. 



Jan. 8, at the regular meeting of the 
debating club at the home of Dr. Ste\ 'en- 
son tentative schedules for the debating 
season were announced, and the teams 
were selected. 

For the women's team all the meetings 
except with Seton Hill will debate the 
question : Resolved, that Congress should 
have the power to override, by a two- 
thirds majority vote, decisions of the 
Supreme Court declaring laws passed 
by Congress unconstitutional. 

The schedule is as follows : 

Seton Hill Feb. 12 

Elizabethtown Feb. 17 

Ursinus Feb. 26 

Elizabethtown Mar. 11 

Millersville Mar. 25 

and probably Pennsylvania State, Buck- 
nell and Juniata College. 

Albert Anderson announced that defi- 
nite debates have been scheduled for the 
men. 

Elizabethtown Feb. 11 

Lincoln Feb. 28 

Albright Mar. 4 

Debates are being scheduled with Ur- 
smus and Western Maryland. 

1 he women's teams are : affirmative, 
Marion Leisey and Louise Gillan with 
Razelle Levitz as alternate; negative, 
Winona Schroff and Emma Mary Smy- 
ser with Esther Flom as alternate. 

A practice debate will be held next 
Tuesday evening on this subject between 
Razelle Levitz, affirmative, and Emma 
Mary Smyser, negative.

Elaborate Affair

pus to play for the Kalo dinner dance 
and the Junior Prom of last year. To 
those who haven't heard them, they are 
true rhythm makers who will certainly 
afford plenty of pleasure for one evening. 

But the great innovation for an affair 
of this sort appears in the talent of the 
sophomore class and professional talent 
that has been procured to drive away 
those dull moments between dances. 
Miss Jeanette Myers, a professional 
dancer from Harrisburg, will render 
several lovely numbers. Miss Myers, it 
will be recalled, previously appeared 
here, also, at the Conservatory Dance. 

And then— the secret will out ! The 
sophs present for the first time the 
"Three Sailorettes", a charming trio, 
composed of Lucille Maberry, Isabel 
Cox, and Arlene Hoffman, who will 
sing two outstanding numbers from the 
motion picture production — "Shipmates 
Forever." 

Last, but not the least certainly, an 
accordion specialty given by no other 
than Luther Long. 

Now, realizing the absolute necessity 
of taking advantage of this unusual 
treat, if in doubt about a last minute 
date, see Captain Carolyn Roberts, 
chairman of the Soph Date Bureau.

school, and during the summer of 1935 
taught at the Juilliard Summer School 
under George Wedge. She has been re- 
engaged for 1936. 

She has appeared in recitals in the far 
west and eastern cities of the United 
States and Canada. She played in Bech- 
stein Hall in Berlin, for Frau Louisa 
Wolfe, whose husband was the origin- 
ator of Concert Management, who is 
now the head of the Wolfe Bureau that 
launched Liszt and Rubinstein. 

At Juilliard she did the accompanying 
for the master classes of the late Koch- 
anski, world famous Polish Violinist, 
and Leopold Auer. 

With the National Broadcasting Sy- 
stem Miss Duffey appeared on a two- 
piano recial with Rudolph Gruen, in 
Concerto with Symphony under the di- 
rection of Howard Barlow, and solo 
work as well as Chamber Music ap- 
pearances. During the summer season of 
1935 she played in a series of all piano 
and violin sonatas over Mutual Broad- 
cast with Eddy Brown, iternationally 
known violinist. 

Miss Duffey made records with George 
Barrerre the famous flutist, also re- 
cordings of performances given in the 
open air Theatre seating 8000 in Cha- 
tauqua, N. Y., with the New York 
Symphony. 

She substituted for Ernest Schelling 
and on 12 hours notice played the Chopin 
F-minor Concerto with the New Eng- 
land Symphony. Does this prove any- 
thing but genuine, artistic musicianship? 

It is, without a doubt, a privilege to 
have her here, and a greater privilege 
for us to hear her in Engle Hall, Febru- 
ary 6. 



L. V. C. Students At 

Large Convention 



{Continued From Page 1) 



for a sequence of addresses ; special 
features such as a play and international 
teas; and seminars for an intimate ex- 
change of thought between delegates 
and leaders. Rivals of Christianity and 
basic realities existing in the Christian 
world today were presented by mission- 
aries and theologians in the sessions of 
the convention. More than 3,000 college 
and university students, who represented 
45 states of the union, the dominion of 
Canada, the republic of Mexico, and all 
continents of the world were in attend- 
ance, attracting the attention of the en- 
tire religious world to Indianapolis. 
Among the prominent leaders present 
were Dr. Toyohiko Kagawa, the most 
Reverend William Temple, archbishop of 
York, Dr. Gonzalo Camargo, John R. 
Mott, Robert E. Speer, T. Z. Koo. 

Reports were given in chapel by Dr. 
Stonecipher on Monday morning, who 
outlined the program of the convention. 
On Tuesday Irma Keiffer gave a very 
interestng report on the seminar "The 
Christian Fellowship and Problems of 
the Race." In her report Miss Keiffer 
gave a consideration of Christianity and 
the race problem. On Wednesday Harold 
Beamesderfer rendered a report on the 
seminar, "A Christian Approach to the 
Jew", in which he set forth the historical 
background, present day trends, and our 
.Christian responsibility to the Jew. 
Louis Straub's report which was sched- 
uled for Thursday morning, will be 
postponed indefinitely, on account of ill- 
ness. Further reports will follow in the 
various organizations who made it pos- 
sible for these students to take in this 
convention.

Holiday Mishaps 

Two day students from Lebanon 
had the misfortune to have to hang 
their stockings for Santa Glaus on a 
sick-room bedpost. 

Sylvia Evelev, a Junior, underwent 
an operation for appendicitis. She is 
rapidly recovering and will return the 
second semester. We compliment Syl- 
via on picking the exam period to 
have her vermiform appendage ex- 
tracted and extend the sincere wishes 
of the newspaper gang in behalf of 
the student body for her early return 
to the field of action. 

Charles Hoffman, a Junior, fell on 
an icy pavement and fractured a col- 
lar bone. The break is healing nicely. 
There is a feature interest to this 
story which must not be overlooked: 
Charley had an "important engage- 
ment" with Lena shortly before the 
mishap and rumor has it — . Well, use 
your imaginations. Anyhow, we'll be 
seeing you soon, Charley, and until 
then — cheerio.

"Parade of the Animal Kingdom," by 
Robert tiegner. Here is an unusual na- 
tural history of animals written for all 
who wish to know something about the 
modes of life and activities of the ani- 
mals they see and about which they 
read, the author and his assistant have 
chosen representatives from each large 
group in the animal knigdoni, arranged 
in order of their complexity from Amoe- 
ba to Man. Their bases of selection are: 
animals familiar in everyday life as the 
squirrel; animals economically important 
for food, fur, etc., as the oyster, cod, 
inuskrat; unusual animals as the sea 
horse and bird-of-paradise; animals com- 
monly seen in circuses and zooligical gar- 
dens as the lion and elephant; animals 
familiar in literature as the skylark and 
chambered nautilus; prehistoric animals 
as mammoth and dinosaur; and mytho- 
logical animals as the unicorn. 

The author takes pains to tell what 
most people want to know about ani- 
mals — such as what a certain animal 
looks like, where it lives, how it protects 
itself, where and how it obtains its food, 
how it reproduces, and how it affects 
human welfare. 

The book contains 743 of the best il- 
lustrations made available by modern 
photography, most of them being photo- 
graphs of living animals in their native 
haunts. It is written in a most interest- 
ing fashion and backed by years of ex- 
perience and research.

"Vein of Iron," by Ellen Glasgow. 
This ripe, rich novel is Miss Glasgow's 
major work. She has reached into the 
past for the roots of a story of modern 
life, using the Great Valley of Virginia 
for the background. 

The setting of the book is in 1901. The 
Fincastle family had lived for genera- 
tions in the Great Valley, originally set- 
tled by Scotch Presbyterians. They were 
part of its fields and streams and moun-

tain peaks, of its religion, traditions, 
and unspoken laws. To Grandmother 
fincastle, grizzle-haired, heroic Presby- 
terian, it was tragic that her son, John, 
should turn into a free-thinking philoso- 
pher and be cast out of the ministry for 
heresy. But she stayed on in the old 
house caring for him and Mary Evelyn, 
his happy Tidewater wife whose delicacy 
was scarcely suited to the privations of 
mountain life. To Grandmother and 
John Fincastle, Ada, the child of the 
next generation, brought grief when she 
followed the bent of her ''single heart." 
Vet Ada met the harshness of twentieth 
century existence in the same stubborn 
spirit of courage with which her great- 
great-grandmother had survived capti- 
vity at the hands of the Indians. 

the vein of iron — the will to live, the 
integrity and fortitude which draw gen- 
erations together, — is the intense theme 
of this honest picture of modern life 
which has no space for evasions or senti- 
mentality. It centers in the love story 
of Ada Fincastle and Ralph McBride, 
and follows them through a tragic disap- 
pointment, an idyllic episode of fulfill- 
ment, a war separation, brief prosperous 
years in a Tidewater city, and the poig- 
nant problems of the 1930's. Growing 
more profound in its dramatic episodes, 
it becomes- an unforgettable novel of hu- 
man nature in conflict with fate.

Ursinus, F. & M. 
Defeat L. V. Team 
In League Tilts 

sP onaugle"~high scorer 

p. BiHett High Man For Valley As 
Blue And White Drops 
Lebanon Game. 



Lebanon Valley's first two ventures in- 
to league competition in the current 
basketball season ended disastrously for 
the Blue and White, who were defeated 
bv Ursinus, 39 to 22, in the opener at 
Collegeville, and took another one on 
the chin in the first home encounter 
when F. & M. registered a 54 to 39 
triumph. 

Ursinus, with Calvert and Grenawalt 
leading the way, ran rough shod over 
the Valleyites, the Bears assuming a 21- 
12 advantage during the first half and 
increasing their margin of victory in the 
final canto. 

In the F. & M. game, Lebanon Valley 
held a lead of 10 to 5 during the opening 
minutes of play, then slumped badly 
while the Diplomats went into the van by 
a 17-10 count and never could quite close 
the gap between themselves and their 
opponents thereafter. 

Woody Sponaugle and John Hummer 
■■'r.-ed f nr visitors, the former lead- 
ing the scoring with 22 points while the 
latter played a nice floor game and found 
time in addition to add seven field goals 
to the F. & M. totals. 

For two brief periods in the second 
half it appeared as though the Valleyites 
might overtake their opponents when 
they advanced to within seven points of 
the Diplomats, but the Lancastrians al- 
ways came back with a fast-moving at- 
tack and a scoring spree right before the 
final whistle gave them a wide margin of 
victory in the final scoring. 

Paul Billett led the L. V. C. attack 
with sixteen points, six of them on fouls 
shot in the first half, when the Blue and 
White forward did not miss a single try 
from the fifteen- foot line. Snell was 
second-high man for Lebanon Valley 
with eight counters. 

Sponaugle broke the ice at the start of 
*e game with a follow-up field goal af- 
j- er a brief period of futile attack by 
b °th teams. Paul Billett retaliated with 
tWo P oi nts on fouls charged against Mar- 
tln - Snell sent L. V. C. ahead when he

W. S. G. A. TO BUY 
MONOPOLY BOARDS 

Dinner Party For Body Discussed At 
Meeting. 



Two questions occupied the attention 
of the \V. S. G. A. board at its regular 
meeting, Tuesday, January 14. The first 
concerned itself with the new game, mo- 
nopoly, that is rapidly growing in pop- 
ularity. Due to its amazing success, it 
was decided that the Board should pur- 
chase two more games, so that each girl's 
dormitory would have one as its sole pos- 
session. 

The second factor of importance was 
that of a dinner which the Board plans 
to have early in the second semester. As 
recognition no longer is given to those 
who are members of this organization, 
it was decided that a dinner party was 
well-deserved. At this affair it was 
planned that all members of the W. S. 
G. A. faculty committee should be in- 
vited and that campus problems be dis- 
cussed informally. No definite date has 
been determined for the affair. 



L-Club Initiates Nine 
Into Athletic Coterie 



Club Plans Semi-Formal Early This 
Spring. 



Met some fellows carrying paddles 
about 10 :oo P. M. Tuesday and, think- 
ing that perhaps we might find a little 
news, took the opportunity to interrogate 
the group. It was rather chilly outside 
the Ad building and considerable chat- 
tering of teeth rather confused their an- 
swers but it appeared that not all the 
noise made by the rattling molars was 
due to the frigidity of the air. We satis- 
fied ourselves in short order that the 
boys would soon be warm for they told 
us they were going to the "L" club ini- 
tiation as candidates for degrees. The 
initiators informed us that the initiation 
was to be traditional and how it was, 
ask any of the following for detailed in- 
formation: Paul Billett, Clair Snell, 
Gordon Davies, Walter Fridinger, Harold 
Kroske, Pete Klipa, Frank Rozman, 
Ross Sheesley, John Tindall. These men 
who have now entered the club received 
their "L's" last spring and now, having 
survived the flailing chamber are quali- 
fied and will aid in initiating those fel- 
lows who are not members of the club 
who earned their "L" in football this 
past season. In the early part of the sec- 
ond semester the latter will be initiated 
into the club. 

The "L" club is proposing plans to 
conduct a semi-formal dance early this 
spring. To date no definite arrangements 
have been made for the affair. 



DELPH1ANS HOLD TEA 

Delta Lambda Sigma entertained their 
new members and guests at an informal 
tea in their hall Tuesday afternoon. 
June Gingrich, president, received the 
guests while her mother poured. 

Dr. Lena Leitzau, Mrs. H. M. Gru- 
ber, Mrs. G. D. Gossard, Miss Minnie 
Gossard, Mrs. S. H. Derickson, Mrs. 
P. A. Wallace, Miss Henderson, Miss 
Richardson, and Mrs. C. R. Gingrich 
were Delphians guests.

NOTICE 



Students are a -ked to please coop- 
erate with the Annville officer. The 
town policeman has asked the Senate 
to notify students that anyone who is 
hopping from the street is liable to 
arrest. Students must not stand be- 
yond the curbing, in the street, while 
waiting for a hop. You will save 
yourselves from considerable embar- 
rassment by cooperating in this meas- 
ure. 



Girl's Basketball 
To Get Under Way 

Miss Henderson, Back At 
School, Plans Activities. 



Miss Esther Henderson returned Sun- 
day to L. V. campus to take up her 
work which was interrupted before 
Christmas by an unfortunate accident. 
She expressed her appreciation for the 
greetings and letters from her many 
friends here. 

The immediate question for her to 
settle is basketball, in order to get things 
into working order three groups have 
been arranged : inexperienced players, 
experienced players, and those interested 
in coaching. There will be class tourna- 
ments. The varsity team will be whipped 
into shape to play against Elizabethtown 
and possibly Susquehanna and Moravian. 
In the near future Miss Mayor, a na- 
tional official, of Harrisburg, will dem- 
onstrate and explain officiating at a dem- 
onstration game to be held here. 

The W. A. A. constitution is nearing 
completion and is to be submitted to the 
women of the student body for approval. 
Election of officers will then take place 
and an installation service held. 

We are happy to welcome back Miss 
Henderson who seems to brimimng over 
with all sorts of plans for May Day. It 
won't be long now ! 



Frosh Basketeers 
Take Fast Opener 

Frev Shines As Rally Downs 
F. & M. Plebes 



In the preliminary to the first home 
game played on the Lebanon high school 
floor last Saturday night, the L. V. C. 
Frosh played their first game of the 
season and rallied magnificently in the 
second half to overcome an early lead 
of the F. & M. Frosh and turn in a 
38-30 win. 

The Valley first-year men seemed a 
bit stage-struck and over-anxious in the 
opening periods and the visitors as- 
sumed a half-time advantage of 21-12. 
However, the Blue and White Frosh 
started to click in the final canto and 
outscored their opponents, 26-9, to annex 
the victory. 

Raymond Frey, Lebanon lad, the sensa- 
tional high scorer of last year's Central 
Pennsylvania Interscholastic League, re- 
turned to the scene of his high school 
conquests and led the Frosh attack with 
20 points, fourteen of them in the sec- 
ond half. Brown, Kress, and Kniley also 
showed up well and the indications are 
that the greenies will enjoy a highly 
successful season.

WEST HALL LEADS 
Y. FRIENDLY HOUR 

Ruth Goyne Directs Well Arranged 
Program Sunday Night. 



The West Hall girls presented a well 
arranged program, under the direction 
of Ruth Goyne, to the Y. W. C. A. 
Friendly Hour on Sunday night. A pi- 
ano prelude by Amy Meinhardt was fol- 
lowed by the singing of the hymn, "More 
Love to Thee, () Christ." Grace Geyer 
read a group of New Testament scrip- 
tures and led the prayer. A cello solo 
by Dorothy Zeit.ers was accompanied by 
Dorothy Yeakel. The topic of the even- 
ing, "Jesus Christ," was presented by 
Ethel Houtz, The devotional period was 
closed with "O Master, Let Me Walk 
With Thee" and the Lord's prayer. 

These brief Sunday evening devotional 
periods held in both the men's and wo- 
men's dorms are most worthwhile and 
should be given the consideration of ev- 
ery student on the campus. 



Hugh Walpole, Woolcott 
Discussed by Readers 

Lawrence And Aiken Also Viewed 
By Group Monday. 



The Readers' Club met at the home of 
Dr. Wallace on Monday, January 13. 
Jean Harnish conducted the meeting. A 
varied selection of new books was dis- 
cussed as the program for the evening. 

The Inquisitor, by Hugh Walpole, was 
the first book to be reviewed. Calvin 
Reber handled this book. The Inquisitor 
is the new novel of Polchester, its peo- 
ple, and its cathedral. 

The next book discussed was of quite 
different style. Lois Harbold told of 
Alexander Woolcott's book, While Rome 
Bums. This is an entertaining group 
of essays and short stories. Woolcott's 
style is quite individual and never bor- 
ing. 

The Seven Pillars of Wisdom was re- 
viewed by Belle Mulhullen. This is Law- 
rence's famous book, the manuscript of 
which was lost in a railway station. It 
is a story of Turkish and Arab warfare. 
Lawrence has written another book, 
somewhat similar, Revolt in the Desert. 

An entirely different book, King Cof- 
fin, by Conrad Aiken, was reviewed by 
William Clark. The book is startling, 
and as Mr. Clark said, too different. It 
is a psychological horror story. The 
reviewer concluded that King Coffin 
should be buried. 

The program was rounded out by a 
discussion of the plays of the season. 
Harold Phillips commented on several 
productions and gave the club an enter- 
taining view of the highlights of this 
year's theatre. 



DELPHIAN MEETING 



Delphian held a meeting Monday 
night to interview a salesman in re- 
spect to their dance favors. Definite 
plans were made for the tea held on 
Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 P. M. tl 
entertain the new members and spe- 
cial guests. 



Football Team Is 
Tendered Banquet 
TuesdayjNight 

DR. LYNCH TOASTMASTER 



Dr. Miller, Clarence Munn, Dr. Engle, 
D. E. Walter Among Speakers; 
Dr. Derickson Shows Movies. 



A crowning tribute has been paid to 
our football team and coaches. This 
tribute assumed the form of a testi- 
monial banquet given in honor of our 
gridiron athletes by the Athletic Council 
on Tuesday evening in the College Din- 
ing Hall. 

The opening feature was a deliciously 
prepared dinner. After everyone present 
had finished with this masterpiece of 
the gustatory realm, the program was 
opened by Dr. Lynch, the toastmaster, 
who introduced the speakers of the even- 
ing in turn. The first speaker was 
Coach "Jerry" Frock. Following him 
were the two captains, Boyd Sponaugle 
and "Danny" Bartolet who spoke on 
behalf of the team. Following in order 
are the rest of the speakers and the or- 
ganizations they represented: 

Trustee Board Dr. J. R. Engle 

Faculty Dr. E. H. Stevenson 

Student Body Albert Anderson '36 

Athletic Council ....Prof. C. R. Gingrich 

Varsity "L" Club Paul Miller '36 

Alumni Postmaster Daniel E. 

Walter '18 

Community E. D. Williams '17 

The main address was delivered by Dr. 
H. E. Miller, class of '99. Dr. Miller, 
better known to us "Grap's" father, vi- 
sioned an athletic field for L. V. C. in 
the near future. He said that the way 
things look now such a thing is not im- 
possible but rather, highly probable. He 
further made known the need for just 
such a thing, including a stadium, mak- 
ing the grads' return to the campus for 
home football games a more pleasant 
occasion. 

Another speaker who came as an un- 
expected but pleasant surprise was Clar- 
ence Munn, head coach of Albright, for- 
mer Ail-American star from Minnesota. 
He expressed a genuine desire for more 
happy relations to exist between his and 
our college than the traditional relations. 
May we here express our appreciation 
to Mr. Munn for this much-needed-in- 
the-past sentiment. 

Following the speeches Dr. Derickson 
gave those present a treat in allowing 
them to live over again in the movies 
some of the more exciting moments of

Honors For Sale 

Frequently we are confronted on the campus with people who feel that the sole 
function of La Vie Collegienne is to put the names of organizations or of indi- 
viduals in our headlines in order to honor them or merely to make them feel good. 
For example, if we put the name of one literary society in a headline in 30 point 
Uodoni and the name of another in a second headline in 24 point Caslon we hear 
iaint mutter ings or even open censure because "my society got smaller size type 
than yours tlia, ' and no regard is taken as to the relative importance of the two 
articles or to the difficulties facing the make-up man when he tries to make a de- 
cent arrangement of the articles. The folly of such petty quibbling is obvious. 

iiut, let us take this foolish idea that the paper is dealing out honors by the 
column men a little farther. Suppose someone on the campus does something real- 
iy nutate — and the La Vie fails to report the incident. We have made an enemy 
iui- me. we have offered someone a direct insult by failing to honor him by put- 
ting ms deeds in our paper. Isn't this idea just a trifle more naive than the auove 
case.- ivnu yet this very thing happens week after week. 

xjear reader, we are attempting to run a weekly newspaper. We are attempt- 
ing to cover all campus news as is of some interest to our reading public. As most 
ui uar reauing public consists of the student body, we are in a great part interest- 
ed cmeny with recording those things of interest to the students. Frequently we 
uiiss news, and we regret tnat fact. We appreciate highly the help we receive 
iium persons not on our stall' who volnuteer to give us or suggest to us things we 
might otherwise miss. But remember this — if you are engaged in some important 
activity 01 great news value and the La Vie fails to mention it, our failure is no 
reflection on you whatsoever. It is solely a reflection on La \ ie Coujegienue. 



Anent Columnists 

Another point in which La Vie has gained some opposition on the campus is 
in regaru lo columnists. Uur columnists, reviewers, sports writers are selected lor 
wnat we consider their peculiar ability in their held. Perhaps you do not agree. 
a hat is your privilege. We instruct these writers differently from our news report- 
ers because they are fulfilling a different function. We tell them to be frank, 
give their honest opinion, to distinguish between the good and the mediocre. Every 
coiummst or reviewer is, in a sense, a critic. Every critic is giving his own per- 
sonal opinion. That is all he pretends or attempts to do. We encourage our col- 
uimusts to be frank because we do not believe it is their function to honor people 
tneieiy as a reward for their efforts. We refuse to concede that La \ ie Colie- 
giejmai: should ooze saccharine from every pore. We believe we all are a little past 
the stage in which we must not mention anyone in our paper without agreeing with 
him completely or showering him with compliments. 

However, we hear rumors of a silver-tongued student orator of the day stu- 
dents' room who says that this idea is a destructive menace — very childish to say 
the least. We should appreciate a contribution from him explaining how we may 
attain his adult level. Until then think these things over: how much does a column- 
ist's praise mean if he never censures anyone? The La Vie's function is not to dole 
out tiie literary equivalent of service medals. This paper is as strong for Lebanon 
Valley College as anyone else, and our criticism is not aimed ultimately at destroy- 
ing, but at building up. 

At any rate, our reviewers are not so harsh as one of their contemporary fel- 
lows on a great publication whose complete play review is this sentence, "When 
Mr calls hu play 'Halfway to UelV he under-estimates the distance." 



L. V. Stage 



Call lor volunteers to carry hot soup 
to the county jail to Wig and liuckle 
members. \\ . and 13. is bankrupt, ami 
the next step will be imprisoning the 
members for non-payment of debt. The 
puppet show was expected to bring far 
more than the eighty-live dollars that 
was actually taken in. But, never mind, 
L. V., you aren't so bad; Dickinson took 
in only thirty-live dollars on the same 
show. 

* * * * 

Ray Smith, puppet-master-in-chief, 
brought with him a whole slew of amus- 
ing anecdotes. Among them was the one 
about the trick he played on the Hen- 
drickson Bruce Shakespearian Company, 
which preceded him in a performance 
in a certain southern town. At the time, 
Smith was in possession of a miniature 
telephone booth, half moon and all, that 
he used in a Chic Sale act. He bribed a 
town youngster to plant it on the stage 
just at the time for Hamlet's ghost to 
go super-dramatic. As Mark Twain 
would say, we'll draw the curtain of 
mercy on the rest of the scene. 

* * * * 

Smith is the only man we know of who 
literally has himself in hand while "un- 
der-the-influence-of — " You see, the lit- 
tle drunk in the ice skating scene is a 
caricature of Smith a la puppet — and lie 
operates it himself. 

* * * * 

Next time he comes — probably in 
about two years (we trust that the Wig 
and Buckle will be out of the red by 
then) — he will play Treasure Island for 
which he has the adaptation and music 
written already. 

* * * * 

If you think playing dolls is simple, 
try that trapeze act in which each of the 
two puppets is controlled by nineteen 
cords. * * * * 

Bob Bromely, one of the assistant pup- 
peteers, received a birthday present 
while here. He had the good judgment 
not to open it, but the students, in co- 
operation with the show, had lots of 
fun shaking the package and listening 
to it gurgle. 

* * * * 

Wig and Buckle's next enterprise, a 
play which we bet dollars to doughnuts 
will be O'NielPs Where the Cross Is 
Made, will be produced in such a way as 
to create a training school in staging, 
lighting, and make-up for the W. and 11. 
members. It is president Phillips' idea, 
and, of course, he will be the instructor. 
It would sound pretty good to us, Hal, 
if it didn't look so much like preliminary 
steps to total resignation — or shall we 
call it desertion?

on one of two fouls, Martin missed a 
pair of charity chances, and Wenrich 
counted twice from right under the bas-

Billett, Sponaugle, and Landers regis- 
tered field goals before the intermission, 
leaving the Diplomats in the van, 31-17. 

Snell and R. Billett counted fouls and 
Aungst made a nice overhead shot at 
the start of the second half. Hummer 
from side court, Sponaugle on an over- 
head shot, and Hummer again, this time 
after an out-of-bounds play, counted 
for the Diplomats. P. Billett clicked a 
field goal for L. V. C. but missed a 
foul, his first charity miss of the even-

field before Speg, Tindall, and Wenrich 
were substituted in the lineups. P. Bil-

dribble-in and counted again on a tap-in 
after Tindall and Aungst had missed. 
Snyder came back into the game for 
Wenrich, and McCloskey replaced Hum-

a foul as Snell returned to the Valley 
lineup, with Aungst retiring. Tindall 
made two straight field goals from close 
in and converted fouls called on each of 
the scoring plays to net L. V. C. six 
points and bring them to within seven 
points of the Diplomats at 40-33. Eight 
minutes of play remained. F. & M. came 
back strong as Snyder, Hummer, and 
Sponaugle netted field goals to change 
the figures to 46-33- Snell made two 
t'ollow-up shots good after P. Billett 
and Tindall had missed, and Paul Billett 
took a pass under the basket on a smart 
out-of-bounds play and counted a two- 
pointer to once again bring Valley within 
seven points of the Diplomats. Score, 



46-39. An avalanche of F. & M. count-

will be remembered, whipped up a great- 
er enthusiasm by his cheer-leading at 
several of the games. Mr. Evans lead 
the banqueteers in a rousing "Ramma-

It is certain that those thirty three

Music was furnished throughout the

A joint meeting of the Debating Club 
and the International Relations Club

of both the Supreme Court and Congress 
followed. 

Louise Shearer, manager of the wo-

At Indiana State Teachers' College, a 
reporter stopped several students and 
asked them the definition of a goblet. 
One said it was about the size of a 
dwarf, only uglier; the second thought 
a goblet was a four-lined stanza in po- 
etry; a third decided it was a turkey. 
The prize answer, however, was given by 
the fourth student who said, "A goblet 
is a sailor's little boy." 




TO COLLEGE MEN WHO WOULD LIKE 
TO SMOKE A BETTER PIPE TOBACCO 




COOLEST 
SMOKE EVER! 



FIFTY PIPEFULS 
IN EVERY TIN ! 



Read the fair and square proposition at 
the right. We publish it, knowing that 
in Prince Albert we've got the quality... 
the mellowness. ..the taste and aroma 
that college men will appreciate. So now 
we ask that you, too, try Prince Albert. 

Note P. A.'s special cut. "Crimp cut," 
it is called. It has a lot to do with why 
Prince Albert packs so neatly into the 
bowl and burns so cool and mild. Only 
top -quality tobaccos are used. Ordinary 
tobacco will not do. 

P. A. is packed in a big 2-ounce econ- 
omy tin. Smokers get around 50 pipefuls 
from a tin. Fifty pipefuls — and no bite 1 

Because of its many advantages, Prince 
Albert has become the largest-selling pipe 
tobacco in the world. Join up with P.A. 
...under our you -must -be -pleased plan! 



OUR "YOU-MUST- 
BE-PLEASED" OFFER 

Smoke 20 fragrant pipefuls of Prince 
Albert. If you don't find it the mellowest, 
tastiest pipe tobacco you ever smoked, 
return the pocket tin with the rest of the 
tobacco in it to us at any time within a 
month from this date, and we will re- 
fund full purchase price, plus postage.

Notes on Books 



Each day the library adds to its al- 
ready overflowing shelves just a few 
more gems for the modern college stu- 
dent. Now a book rich in educational 
values, now a witty wandering of some 
entertaining novelist, now a leading dra- 
matic sensation and now and then a deli- 
cate dash of sentimentality. 

Some of the recent works that have 
met with great favor are the following: 
"While Rome Bums," by Alexander 
Woollcott. Six years ago America's fa- 
vorite raconteur forsook his calling as 
our leading dramatic critic and became 
widely known for his free lance writings, 
many of which have appeared in the 
New Yorker, Collier's, and the Cosmo- 
politan. Today he is unique: he collects 
anecdotes and murder stories, portrait 
sketches of the people who interest him 
and his audience applauds even if the 
subjects do not. He travels to China, or 
Russia, or the Century of Progress, if 
they are entertaining. He knows all sorts 
of people in all sorts of places, and he 
writes of his many-sided, rushing life 
with wit and gusto. 

This book contains a generous selec- 
tion of his best work — a rich and varied 
collection not only to read, but to own 
and keep and reread and chuckle over. 
Here are his famous murder stories — 
"It May Be Human Gore"; his memor- 
able profiles of "Some Neighbors,*' well- 
known, glamorous men and women; the 
exciting accounts of his adventures in 
far places; anecdotes of his war days; 
notes on books and plays that are worth 
remembering; and legendary tales that 
sound new due to his inimitable fashion 
of retelling them. He well earns his title 
of a great story-teller, fine writer and 
one of the leading wits of the time. 



'College Men," by Dom Proface. Col- 
lege men — Tom who went to school in 
order to live — Charley who died calling 
football signals — Jim who flunked the 
course at the country club to lead his 
class in medicine — Joe who risked his 
life to save another, but who was "scared 
to death of that d — n French exam' — 
Frank who found out that whenever he 
did a thing he did it to someone else — 
Howard who thought himself a success 
simply because he "got by." Then there 
was Louis who felt that the professors 
cheated him — Jesse James, William, 
James and Matt who didn't know the 
difference — Greg, the only son, who 
learns what it means to live with others 
— and Hugh who masters the art of be- 
ing a gentleman while Art learns the 
danger of not being one. Campus spend- 
thrifts and drinkers, the effort to have 
a good time while unconscious with fa- 
ther paying the bill — and Rube, the ath- 
lete, who stole in order to be a social 
light. 

Campus lovers, hasty marriages and 
those campus oddities whose normal de- 
sires lead them to unhappy situations — 
a truly human document written by a 
human being whose students love him 
and who protects their confidences by 
writing anonymously.

Dr. Spessard Says 
Matter Is Formed 
From Light Kays 



STIRS SCIENCE WORLD 



L. V. C. Alumnus Presents Convinc 
ing Proof Of Claims To 
Fellow Scientists. 



Dr. Earle Augustus Spessard, an 
alumnus of Lebanon Valley College, now 
of the faculty of Hendrix College at 
Conway, Ark., has created quite a stir 
in the scientific world by presenting new 
proof to the American Association for 
the advancement of science that plant 
life transforms the energy of rays of the 
sun into solid matter. 

Dr. Spessard does not claim definite 
proof of the creation of matter, which 
would substantiate recent theories that 
the universe is deathless, but his results 
of a ten months experiment show con- 
clusively that the stimulus of the sun's 
rays alone actually makes plants gain 
weight. 

The experiment consisted in sealing 
one gram of algae (cyanphycae) to- 
gether with a few microscopic animals 
in glass tubes. Ordinary water was 
sealed in another set of tubes as a con- 
trol on the experiment. After ten 
months the tubes which had been ex- 
posed to the sun on a window sill and 
A'hich contained the plants were found 
t weigh a few tenths of a milligram 
more than the tubes that contained plain 
Abater. 

the result, Dr. Spessard believes, oc- 
curred from the action of the chlorophyll 
which captured not only the energy of 
the light rays but their mass as well.

John Brosioun 



From a College 

Man's Diary 



(Reprinted from The Cr eight onian) 



As the movies see it written — 

Arose at eleven, and, amid the luxuri- 
ous surroundings of my apartment, lei- 
surely dressed. Had difficulty in select- 
ing proper attire from my wardrobe of 
some thirty suits, but Sybil just raved 
when she saw me. Said I was simply 
adorable. To class in my twelve cylinder 
roadster and reclined for an hour in a 
modernistic chair listening to Prof. 
Smaltz lecture on anatomy. Got rid of 
Sybil in time to have lunch with Diane 
and Bunny and thence for a drive along 
the lake. Bunny asked me to marry her, 
but I had to refuse. I do hope she doesu «. 
take it too hard. Tea at the Delt house 
at three. Stopped at the stadium in 
time to change into a uniform and make 
the winning touchdown. Everyone went 
wild. For a bit of relaxation dropped in 
at the "Inkk" office and knocked out an 
editorial for next week's issue. Dinner 
with Sybil at the Plaza, and then for a 
drive along Ox Road. I proposed and 
was acqepted. Married in Strathmore. 



As the reformists see it — 

Got up at twelve with a very brown 
taste and a headache. Had an eye-open- 
er. No lunch except glass of tomato 
juice. Slept through three afternoon 
classes. Took a little nip at three. Stag- 
gered down to a cock-tail party at four. 
Too tame. Feeling pretty woozy, so 
wandered down to the Club to have a 
bracer. Played a bit of poker. I won. 
'Nother nip. Went after date. Went to 
bed. 



As it really is — 

Up at six-thirty and put on socks 
which were standing in the corner. Went 
to breakfast. Got indigestion. Classes 
from eight until twelve. To lunch. Li- 
brary. Studied until five. Went to din- 
ner. Stopped at The Den for a smoke 
and met up with Burt and Hal. Decid- 
ed to see a show, so spent last two-bits 
to do so. Feeling darned tired, so turned 
in early.

Mrs. Kaiser-Harnisch 
Speaks To Reporters 

INTERESTING INTERVIEW 

German Journalist Makes Additional 
Comments To La Vie. 



g rs . Margarete Kaiser-Harnisch of 
Berlin, Germany, spoke to the student 
bo dy i'n Chapel Tuesday morning on the 

.Kiprt The German Youth Movement. 
After her main speech, Mrs. Kaiser an- 
swered many questions of interest asked 
of her by the audience in an open forum 

Mrs. Kaiser granted the writer s 
short interview after her speech and in 
view of some of the things learned then 
her speech seemed even more noteworthy 
For example, Mrs. Kaiser learned her 
English in German schools entirely and 
was taught the language by Germa 
teachers, making her command of our 
native speech truly remarkable. 

A graduate of the University of Ber 
lin, the German newspaper woman com 
mented on the fact that our college 
courses in America are much more con 
cerned with present day foreign affairs 
than are those in German schools. In 
explanation she said that perhaps this is 
due to the fact that at present her 
countrymen are so much concerned with 
bread and butter problems at home that 
they do not find time to worry about the 
rest of the world. President Roosevelt 
does not hold the attention of the aver- 
age German nearly as much as Adolf 
Hitler holds ours. 

The speaker's Chapel talk consisted 
mainly of an historical account of the 
social changes in Germany in the last 
seventy-five years, of the beginnings of 
the youth movement before the World 
War, of the social and political jumble 
after the war, and of the organization 
an d regimentation afterwards in order 
that Germany might pull herself out of 
^r chaos. This is already familiar to the 
student body. 

The questions that were put to the 
s Pcaker after the main address proved 
valuable in bringing out some extremely 
'Cresting points. The German press, 
Jews > dictator, church affairs, educational 
System > stage, and agricultural affairs 
Were brought into the limelight by point- 
Questioning. Mrs. Kaiser proved 
Very sk iHful in ferreting out the desired 
mf °rmation. 

The first thing that was cleared up for

Chem Lab Receives 
Valuable Equipment 



RARE SPECIMEN DONATED 



250 Pound Retort, Carbon Electrode 
And Mineral Curio Given. 



ati °«al r~ 

(C 0fl .- mittee on the Cause and 
tln "ed on Page 4 , Column 3) 



The Chemistry Department recently re- 
ceived gifts of equipment from two in- 
dustrial firms. They received a full size 
retort and condenser for the production 
of zinc from the roasted ore from the 
New Jersey Zinc Company. The retort is 
of the Belgian type and weighs about 
250 pounds. This equipment will be set 
up in the basement of the Administra- 
tion Building. 

From the Aluminum Company of Am- 
erica they received a full size carbon 
electrode as used in the electrolytic 
manufacture of aluminum from refined 
bauxite. The College is greatly indebt- 
ed to these companies for these gifts. 

Both these companies have previously 
made gifts to the College. A few years 
ago the New Jersey Zinc Company pre- 
sented the College with a complete series 
of minerals and ores found in the 
Franklin, New Jersey deposit. This zinc- 
manganese-iron deposit is most unusual 
in that many of the minerals found here 
are found nowhere else in the world. 

From Minas Geraes, Brazil, the Chem- 
istry Department recently acquired a very 
unusual mineral specimen. It is chalce- 
dony enclosing water. From measure- 
ments of the specimen it is shown to 
Contain about 28 cubic centimeters of 
water, the cavity being about half full. 
The water may be strikingly seen by 
holding the specimen before a light. Dr. 
Bender says, "Nature gives us geysers 
and waterspouts but she seldom seals up 
water in stone bottles. There is no rec- 
ord of a finer specimen of this type in 
existence elsewhere." 



Clio Entertains 

A La Leap Year 

Sexes Reverse Customs For 
Evening Of Good Clean Fun. 

Leap year! And the Clio girls lead off 
with the first attack on the recalcitrant 
males. Friday evening, Feb. 7, the fair 
Amazons tripped across the campus duly 
decked out in bibs and tuckers and de- 
scended upon the Men's dorm ! What's 
more, they waited while the he-men they 
had invited as guests to their dance (on 
Clio) in the gym put the last finishing 
touches to their respective coiffures and 
added just that extra bit of color to 
bristling masculine cheek-bones. Prof. 
Carmean, acting as house mother, in- 
spected his charges and readjusted a 
corsage here and there — which corsages, 
by the way, were worn by the fellows 
and billed to the girls. Nice flowers, too, 
even if some of them did come from the 
huckster. 

Then, after checking out, the men were 
accompanied to the dance by their es- 
corts where they were accorded all the 
honors such as being the first through 
doors and being asked to dance. Potato 
and union dances, cut in dances, and 
matching number dances were introduced 
and such real honest-to-goodness fun as 
is rarely seen ran rampant.

EDUCATION DAY 



The United Brethren Church ob- 
served Education Day in all the con- 
ference churches on Sunday, Febru- 
ary 9, and several faculty members 
from Lebanon Valley spoke at vari- 
ous places. 

Dr. Clyde A. Lynch spoke twice 
during the day; in the morning at the 
United Brethren church in Hershey, 
and at the Twenty-ninth Street Uni- 
ted Brethren church in Harrisburg on 
Sunday evening. Prof. A. H. M. 
Stonecipher spoke at the morning ser- 
vice of the New Holland United 
Brethren church in Harrisburg. Prof. 
R. R. Butterwick preached at the 
Derry Street church. Mr. Louis 
Straub spoke at the morning service 
held in the West Fairview church. 



Biblical Drama Is 
Given At A. H. S. 



Lebanon Valley Students 
Figure In Cast. 

Tonight the second presentation of the 
biblical drama, The First Commandment, 
will be held in the high school gym- 
nasium. 

The first presen'.a^bn was last night. 
The play is produced by the Universal 
Producing Company, acted by forty local 
men and women, assisted by the United 
Brethren Church choir, sponsored by 
the Rescue Fire Company of Annville, 
and, in addition, financially aided by 
Annville business men who have pur- 
chased advertising space in the program. 

The play is especially recommended to 
Lebanon Valley Bible students, but will, 
because of the fact that many of the 
actors are from the college, hold interest 
for all Lebanon Valleyites. Among the 
student actors are William Clark in the 
role of Simeon, Robert Til ford as Jo- 
seph, Robert Spohn as Judah, Neal Tre- 
go playing Reuben, and Carolyn Kohler 
and Anna Morrison as Levite women. 
Perhaps the fact that the script calls for 
the choking of Tilford by William Clark 
may add considerably to the inducement 
to attendance. The play will begin at 
eight o'clock. The costumes — beards, 
shields, the royal purple, and the rest of 
it — are provided by the company and are 
in keeping with the customs of Biblical 
times to the nth degree. The play is di- 
rected by Miss Anderson. 



Miss Buela Duffey 

Gives Grand Recital 



Features "Partita In B Flat Major" 
By Bach. 



Miss Buela Duffey, famous Pianist and 
Professor of Piano at the Lebanon Val- 
ley College Conservatory, last Thurs- 
day evening, presented a Piano Recital, 
which was a sensational success. It is a 
rare occasion to hear an artist who is so 
perfectly accomplished in all the quali- 
ties requisite for master musicianship. 
The house, filled to its utmost capacity, 
truly rang with applause when each 
group of numbers was completed. 

The audience thoroughly enjoyed and 
appreciated Miss Duffey's program as 
well as the perfect encores which she so 
generously presented. 



VALLEY BASKETEERS TIED WITH 

MULES FOR LEAGUE POSITION 



L V. C. Student Teachers 
Begin Work This Week 

Dr. Reynolds Gets Second Semester 
Practice Teaching Under Way. 



The student teaching of the Educa- 
tion Department of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege for the second semester began Mon- 
day, Feb. 10 in the Annville High School. 
There are fourteen participants, eight 
young men and six young women, who 
are at present engaged in this prelimi- 
nary preparation to their chosen profes- 
sion. Others who were unable to fit tiie 
teaching program into their schedule this 
semester, expect to do their student 
teaching at Hershey next summer. 

The student teachers are under the 
supervision of Dr. Edgar Reynolds, the 
head of the Education Department at 
Lebanon Valley College; and are assist- 
ed by Charles G. Dotter, the supervising 
principal of the Annville High School 
and the classroom teachers. Each stud- 
ent is assigned regular classes in the high 
school during the semester. 

A prerequisite of this work is the 
course in General Methods, which gives 
them an outline of their work. They 
have preparatory reading, observation re- 
ports; and conferences with the head of 
the department weekly, and their super- 
visors daily. The course is divided into 
three periods — the observation period, in 
which the students observe the methods 
of procedure and plans of the classroom 
teachers, the participation period,

URSINUS BEARS SMITTEN MIGHTILY BY 
METOXEN'S BATTLING DUTCHMEN. 

Lebanon Y alley's quintet rose from 
the depths of the Eastern l'ennsy Col- 
legiate League to smite the mighty Ur- 
sinus Bears two weeks ago, but sank 
hack into a tie for the cellar position in 
the circuit when Muhlenberg's previous- 
ly umictorious Mules deleated the Val- 
ley iies at Ahentown last week. 

'i'tie Lebanon Valley representatives 
now present a league record of one win 
in six games, identical to that sported 
oy the Aiuhlenbergers. With but four 
iniiiui.es of play remaining in the Mule 
nit, ihe Flying i>ui.chuien seemed well on 
ihe way to their second victory of the 
league campaign, with the score 33 t<< 
to in their ravor. 

However, at this point the Muhlen- 
bergers suddenly came to life and caugnt 
tne Blue and Yvhue defense napping to 
count ten points while the locals were 
unable to rack up a single field or foul 
goal. The final score, 35-33, therefore, 
favored the Allentown dribolers, who 
now share the last position in the league 
with the Valleyites. 

i he L rsinus battle at Lebanon pro- 
duced the first league victory of the 
V alley courtsters, the hnal score being 
40 to 31. 

The first half of the fray was nip and 
tuck all the way, whh L. V. C hoiuiug 
a 17-10 advantage at the intermission, 
c rsinus assumed the lead early in tne 
second semester, but "Cniei" xuetoxen s 
forces came back strong to s.nother the 
Bears with surprising ease as ihe whoi^. 
JLebanon Valley cast played brilliant ball 
in the best Valley showing oi the season. 
John bpeg, Paul Billett, Ralph Billett, 
Clarence Aungst, and Pat Patrizio all 
contributed to the Blue and White's late 
rally, with the latter three turning in 
their best performances of the year dur- 
ing the last twelve minutes of the fray. 

The BiUett brothers each contributed 
seven points in the victory, with Aungst 
accounting for nine, Speg for six, and 
Patrizio for four. Greenawalt led the 
losing Ursinus attack with nine points, 
with Calvert, one of the Bears' high 
scorers, being totally bottled up by the 
Valley defense. The tall center was able 
to register but one field goal during the 
entire game.

best play of the season counted fourteen

Work Progresses 
On Quittapahilla 

Editors Promise "A Bigger 
And Better Yearbook." 



The work on the 1937 "Quittie" is go- 
ing steadily forward, according to the 
editor, William H. Earnest. The con- 
tract for the printing was again award- 
ed some time ago to the Harrisburg Tele- 
graph Company, who performed an ad- 
mirable piece of work on last year's is- 
sue. 

The Merin-Baliban Company of Phila- 
delphia, who received the photography 
contract, has practically finished taking 
group and individual pictures. Only pic- 
tures of events occuring during the win- 
ter months remain to be photographed. 
Individual proofs have been distributed 
and students are at present, displaying 
their distinguished portraits to the admir- 
ing boy or girl friend. 

Meanwhile, the editorial staff has been 
busily engaged in proof-reading the 
wealth of material turned in. Arrange- 
ment of material in systematic form has 
been started. The business staff, headed 
by Louis Straub, also has not been 
idle. Staff members are securing a large 
number of ads, so necessary to a suc- 
cessful publication.

CONSERVE NOTES 



Burial And Birth 



It is with a deep feeling of regret that the editors announce the failure of our 
late colleagues, Rudy and Judy, to make the grade. In short, they flunked out and 
no wonder. We wanted them to continue anyway, but Judy had a severe case 01 
cold feet and it was too "darned much work" for Rudy. May all your hearts rest 
tranquil. 

In place of "the college sweethearts'* we have engaged the somewhat pon- 
derous and didactic Clerk of Oxenford, and that mysterious rogue, Xenophon the 
Stooge, who will cavort in their respective "colyums" every now and anon to 
lull us to sleep with sage truths and to provoke us to thought or laughter with 
gay wit (we hope) and satire. 



Mrs. Kaiser-Harnisch 

Speaks To Reporters 

(Continued From Page i) 

the writer in his interview after the 
Chapel program was in regard to the 
speaker's name. Mrs. Kaiser's maiden 
name was Harnisch and her name after 
her marriage is Kaiser. In Germany, un- 
like America, a married woman places 
her maiden name after that of her hus- 
band and not before. Hence, Mrs. Kaiser- 
Harnisch. 

Mrs. Kaiser gave her opinion that the 
Treaty of Versailles was grossly un- 
fair, and when questioned about the feel- 
ings of the Germans toward the French 
she stated that when the German vet- 
erans were returning to their homes at 
the close of the World War most of 
them would have been willing to pick 
up their rifles immediately and proceed 
against France if they could be assured 
that they would have to fight France 
alone. 

Being a journalist herself, the speaker 
can be quoted as an authority for the 
statement that the press of her Father- 
land is under the strict control of the 
government and that every reporter and 
editor must have what amounts to a li- 
cense before he is allowed to print one 
word. There is absolutely no freedom 
of the press in Germany, she admitted. 

As to crime, the German woman stated 
that gangsters as we know them are un- 
known in her country. For one thing, 
everyone there is registered with the po- 
lice whether they are criminals or not. 
Also, there are not nearly so many auto- 
mobiles as in this country nor are they 



so high-powered, She said that she had 
not realized there were so many auto.^ 
in the whole world beiore she saw thosu 
•-. New York City, alone. 

One of the most unexpected things 
that Mrs. Kaiser brought out was along 
the line of social customs, bhe said thai 
one of the things that struck her upon 
her entrance to the United States a few 
months ago is the universal use of cos- 
metics among the members of her sex 
in this country, at all times and upon an 
occasions. She admitted that her country- 
women use a little make-up on formal 
occasions and perhaps a small amount of 
'skin-food" before retiring, but the Am- 
erican malady of "cosmetics skin" is un- 
known there. Another feature of the 
Nazi state is that all jazz orchestras 
are banned there, and if you want to do 
any dancing you have to do it to the 
strains of some old German folk song 
played by a good, stout, one-hundred per 
cent Nazi German band. And your best 
evening gown or top hat will be made of 
.ayon and not silk. 

Tuesday afternoon, Mrs. Kaiser spoke 
to the Ladies Auxiliary of the college in 
North Hall parlor. 



N SYMPATHY 



To Robert Cllppinger, whose 
mother died suddenly last week, 
La Vie extends sin; ere condo- 
lences in behalf of the student 
body and faculty. 



The Girls' Band, anticipating a highly 
active second semester, has increased its 
membership to a high-water mark of 
fifty. Affairs in the offing for which 
preparations are being made include Mo- 
thers' Week End and the May Day Fete.

Campus Cuts 

One of the fairer freshmen was mo- 
mentarily baffled recently during a test 
in English 16'. Asked to tell what Cross, 
huj the Bar was all about, she puckered 
a thoughtful brow or so for approx. a 
sec, and then, with the light of inspira- 
tion shining in her eyes, scrawled off 
the following: "It was about Mr. Ten- 
nyson's trying to pass his law exams."* 
The prof is slowly recovering.

Robert Cassel hates inventions, parti- 
cularly the telephone. He walked over 
10 North Hall one evening not long ago 
and pushed the buzzer button and asked 
for the particular young lady of his par- 
ticular choice. After waiting for about 
one second, he beheld her tripping grace- 
iully down the stairs. She bounced 
lightly over to where Bob was nervous- 
ly chewing his finger nails, but just then 
.he telephone rang. 

•I'll answer it," warbled the lassie, 
and so she did. Soon she came back, 
face was wreathed in smiles. 

"(juess what!" she cried gleefully. 
'Somebody called me up and asked for 
a date. . . . Toodle — oo." 

Bob walked slowly back to the dorm 
and read "Anthony Adverse" till real 
iate. Then lie took off his shoes and went 
to bed. 

"I haven't much to say," Bob stated 
upon being interviewed, "but the worst 
of it is that this good-for-nothing such 
and such borrowed the nickel from me 
to make the call."

Helen Butterwick and Dorothy Krea- 
mer were anything but complimented a 
couple of days ago when a swaggering 
swain with a pile of books under his arm 
approached them in the library and dif- 
fidently inquired concerning an assign- 
ment in a freshman course. The two co- 
eds stared aghast for a moment at the 
presumptuous inquirer and then roared 
in unison, "We haint freshmen— what 
made you think we was?" 



The Clerk of Oxenford 

— gladly ivoldc he leme and gladly teche 



One evening, in the not too distant 
past, I fell into one of those "sessions of 
sweet silent thought," which lead us so 
pleasantly from a consideration of this 
to a reflection upon that, while every 
now and again some startling truth 
drafts its head above the waves of aim- 
less revery. As I was pursuing this idle 
pastime I was suddenly seized with just 
such a vivid disclosure. My thoughts 
which had been ambling good-naturedly 
through their winding mental avenues 
collided at some unseen crossroad and, 
like numerous little particles of quick- 
silver, rushed crazily together forming a 
sparkling ball of truth, of a truth which 
was most unpleasant. Now, I am not 
quite sure but that you readers are ex- 
pecting this certain something to be very 
much more imposing than it really is. In 
truth, I am half tempted to drop the 
matter entirely and cease this scribbling, 
but since I should only have to write up- 
on some other subject, and since the 
shade of Lincoln would frown upon my 
swapping horses in midstream, I shall 
lean forward and whip my literary steed 
into a graceful gallop. Helas ! 
This was the revelation : 

WE ARE, ALL OF US, TAINT- 
ED WITH A SELFISH AMBI- 
TION OF WHICH WE KNEW 
NOTHING BEFORE WE EN- 
TERED COLLEGE. 
Think of our high school days as we 
rushed merrily from one adventure to 
another. Bill, Mary, Joe, the shy little 
colored boy in the back row — they were 
all our friends. We had no enemies. The 
joys of earlier years, when we eagerly 
slipped a penny for the school bank into 
the hands of the poor kid, were still in 
us. Geniality and good-fellowship satu- 
rated us. We were in love with life, 
with the world and all therein. But 
look at us now ! Each of us moves in a 
midget world. We resent intruders, those 
who would gain our confidence being 
rewarded only with our suspicion. We 
have all become enemies at heart, for we 
reason that another's downfall means our 
success. What demon has possessed us, 
to what Mephistopheles have we sold our 
souls? Ah! the answer is on the tip of 
your tongues. Competition he is called. 
He walks everywhere among men, and 
do not doubt that he is right now leer- 
ing at you over your shoulder, for he 
leads a most comfortable existence right 
here on our secluded campus. 

It is he who causes the classroom 



Ur.. 



adepts to disdain their inferiors, the 
derlings to envy their superiors 
both to hold aloof from the profe^ 
For if he did not so cast his ugly vis^' 
oyer us, adepts and underlings ^ , 
each seek the friendship and help f 
other, and those happy days when e 
were very young would be here ag^ 
And consider how this Demon Ri Va , ' 
whispers into our ears, "He's doin' y a ^ 
outta that dame," "Just look at that hu 
sy, she'll steal your boy friend " tr 
eagerly we listen, wrinkling our f 0re 
heads in righteous indignation as th e 
honied words of hate seep through 0u 
system. And when it's all settled that 
Mary is John's and John is Mary's, what 
do Mary and John do? They create 
world within themselves, with never 
thought that the consequent loss f 
friends and the failure to make new ones 
is one of the greatest of tragedies. 

Truly, Competition, thou art a villain • 
for thou hast begotten Enmity, Jealousy' 
and Envy, and thou art the murderer of 
Good-fellowship! 

I confided these thoughts to a friend 
of mine, a Senior, who immediately re- 
called an emotion he had experienced at 
the Sophomore Hop. "I seemed quite out 
of place," said he. "The jollity and 
abandon of our old high school frolics 
was certainly missing. Indeed, there is 
a great deal of sadness in the sophistica- 
tion of a Senior." 

The sadness of which he spoke is the 
sadness of growing old, of having to 
wage the struggle for existence, of hav- 
ing to move at the beck and call of 
Demon Competition. Cannot we strangle 
him and his brood? Must all men be 
enemies ? 



HEART SISTER WEEK 



The Y. W. C. A., at its regular meeting 
last week, planned for "Heart Sister 
Week", which is now in full swing. Each 
day a girl does something considerate 
for her Heart Sister, unknown to the 
other girl. At the end of this week a 
tea will be given and the Heart Sisters 
will reveal their identity to one another. 

The week-end of March 7th and 8th 
was set as the date for Mothers' Week- 
end, during which time the girls on the 
campus will entertain their mothers at 
various programs sponsored by the Y. 

It was decided that after conference 
appropriations had been investigated, the 
cabinet would decide whether or not to 
send delegates to the Student Christian 
Movement conference at Buck Hill Falls 
in March.

Since die opener with the F. & M. 
Frosh in which the Greenies rallied bril- 
liantly in the final half to register a 
sensational win over the crack Diplomat 
Freshman quintet, the Valleyites have 
further dis anguished themselves by 
trouncing three outfits, in addition to 
last Saturday's conquest at Harrisburg. 

The Frosh have defeated the Wyomis- 
sing ^oh/tech passers, the fast-traveang 
Myersto,,n Keys, and the previously un- 
beaten Cornwall Ixigh quintet, as well 
as the F. & M. Fiosh and the Central

In die Wyomissing Tech game the 
Frosh, led by Fiey, tne dead-shoe for- 
ward, registered a Win with amazing 
ease, the final figures standing at 37-17, 
in favor ox the \ alley yearlings. Frey 
collected lateen points to ieau the L. V.

Tony nozaian, the lormer Steelton

times from the field and twelve times 
from the fifteen-foot line as they defeat- 
ed the Collegeville quintet, which regis- 
tered an early-season win over the per- 
ennial champions, Gettysburg's Bullets, 
and had also previously beaten L. V. C. 
at Collegeville. 

Of the four straight defeats suffered 
before the initial win over the Ursinus 
outfit, the losses at the hands of Ursinus 
and Franklin and Marshall have already 
been recorded in these columns, but the 
disastrous tale of two unsuccessful as- 
saults upon the Gettysburg quintet has 
not j r et been related. 

On January 15, at Gettysburg, the de- 
fending champs laced the Valleyites, 49- 
27, as Fish and Morris starred. The lo- 
cal forces had nary a look-in in this par- 
ticular ball game, but the second fuss 
with the Bullets was a slightly different 
story. 

Gettysburg finally landed this second 
encounter by a 38-31 score, but not be- 
fore Morris and Co. had several ex- 
tremely anxious moments regarding the 
ultimate outcome. The Blue and White 
trailed the Bullets at half-time by a 20-' 
15 count, but came back strong after the 
intermission as Paul Billett and Danny 
Bartolet sank field goals in rapid succes- 
sion to place the Valleyites in the van, 
28-25. This three-point advantage suf- 
ficed for about three minutes of play as 
the Blue and White defense tightened. 
However, a field goal by Morris after 
L. V. C. had led for about two minutes 
cut the advantage to one point, and an- 
other field counter by the same "Moony" 
Morris placed the G-burgers back in the 
lead. 

From this point on the Bullets domi- 
nated the play and increased their ad- 
vantage to seven points before the final 
whistle. Morris led the scoring for the 
victors with fourteen points, while Paul 
Billett paced the Valley attack with 
thirteen points, nine of them on success- 
ful foul tries. The L. V. C. forward 
missed but one charity toss during the 
entire game. Composite summary of'

Inter-scholastic And Intra-mural 
Games Feature Activities. 



On Wednesday Feb. 12 the Lebanon 
Valley girls basketball team played 
Elizabethtown College at the Annville 
High School gymnasium at 4 o'clock. 
Those who are out for the team are : 
Agnes Morris, Cora Graby, Geraldine 
Harkins, Ernestine Jagnesak, Dorothy 
Kreamer, Hazel March, Anna Orth, 
Marjorie Smith, Martha Baney, Iva 
Claire Weirick, Jean Hauck, Gail Span- 
gler, Carolyn Roberts, Carolyn Kohler, 
and Wanda Price. On February 21 they 
will play Moravian at Bethlehem. 

Each dormitory has organized a team 
which will compete in a tournament. 
These games will probably be in the 
hands of student referees and will be- 
gin soon. 



PRAYER MEETING 



The first student prayer meeting of 
the second semester was held on the ev- 
ening of February 5, in Philokosmian 
Hall. Since it was the turn for the Y. 
W. C. A. to present the program, Iva 
Claire Weirick, who is chairman of the 
prayer meeting committee, assumed 
charge of the meeting. 

Greta Heiland, a popular member of 
the Sophomore class, was the speaker. 
Hiss Heiland spoke briefly and to the 
point, using as her topic, "That Certain 
Sense of Honor." She pointed out with 
real capability that loyalty, with all that 
it implies, constitutes the basis for a 
certain indefinable sense which is at once 
attractive and inspiring. ''This," she 
said in conclui^on, '"is one of the noblest 
of all human attributes." 



L. V. Stage 



Has politics entered the field to mili- 
tate against a Lebanon Valley organiza- 
tion and its activities? The organization 
is the college dramatic club, the Wig 
and Buckle. And these facts in them- 
selves |are suggestive s The Woman's 
Club of Lebanon sponsors an annual ora- 
torical contest for girls of the Lebanon 
Senior High School, to parallel a similar 
contest for boys which is sponsored by 
a trust fund left by a prominent citizen 
now deceased. 

The Woman's Club is not an overly 
wealthy group, and they have no trust 
fund to provide for the cash prizes which 
they offer to the student winners of their 
contest and which correspond to the 
prizes in the boys' contest. Consequent- 
ly, they find it necessary to lay this ad- 
ditional burden on an already burdened 
treasury. 

This year they evolved a plan by which 
ihey might raise the necessary money. 
They proposed to invite the Wig and 
Buckle to bring to Lebanon their hit 
play, The Late Christopher Bean, which 
was staged earlier this year, and to put 
it once more on the boards in the Leba- 
non High School auditorium. The pro- 
ceeds of the performance would go in 
part to the college organization for their 
efforts, and the major part would go in- 
to the Woman's Club fund to provide 
for the prizes from which the oratorical 
contest winners would benefit, this year 
and probably for several years to come. 

All very well and good. But — recent- 
ly, because of several influential theatre 
owners who objected that activities of 
the high school stage were draining them 
of their rightful revenue, the school 
heads made a rule that high school func- 
tions only would be allowed in the future 
in the school auditorium. Probably this 



was a wise rule from a business man's 
view point. When the Woman's Club ap- 
plied for permission to sponsor the col- 
lege play on the higli school stage, they 
were promised a reply and, as no reply 
was forthcoming, they took the silence 
as a polite refusal. Now the perform- 
ance is scheduled to appear on a very 
small stage of a parish house of one of 
the city churches. 

From a performance in the small house 
selected, it is impossible that the pecu- 
niary proceeds will be as great as from 
one in the high school auditorium. The 
sponsors may not net enough to cover 
the prizes for even this year's oratoricaJ 
contest. 

This play performance is not a high 
school function. However, it seems to 
us that as the high school is the chief 
one to benefit from the proceeds and that 
the only other beneficiary is another ed- 
ucational group in all reasonableness and 
to avoid suspicion of ulterior motives, 
the high school fathers should have 
granted permission to a worthy cause to 
use the bigger auditorium.

The men were escorted to town at in-

door sport of American college students 
— namely, eating. Some of the lady es- 
corts were sorely surprised when the 
tables were turned and they paid a bill 
which looked like the German war debt. 

After intermission the couples re- 
turned to the gym again to enjoy the 
music and at 11 :45 the young ladies es- 
corted the men back to their abode and 
dragged themselves back across the cam- 
pus agreeing that they had had a thor- 
oughly good time. Oh weli, girls will

Hershey Elected Kalo 
Anniversary President 

Promises To Appoint Committees In 
Near Future. 



. The first step to Kalo's Dinner-Dance 
was taken Friday, February 7, when 
Paul Hershey was elected anniversary 
president by the society. Robert Ed- 
wards, the winter term president, con- 
ducted the election for the anniversary 
president. 

Mr. Hershey has complete charge of 
all plans for conducting the annual event 
and so the success of the affair lies in 
his and his committee's hands. At pres- 
ent, no committees have been appointed 
but they will be announced in the near 
future. 

Last year Kalo enjoyed an excellent 
dinner-dance at the Hotel General Sut- 
ter in Lititz. This year the agitation 
seems to point to Hershey as the prob- 
able place for the big event on Fiiday, 
March 27. According to Mr. Hershey's 
statement, this dance will be the best 
ever. 



KALO INITIATIONS 
HELD BIG SUCCESS 



Despite its scarcely inconsiderable cir- 
culation, the report that the Violent 
\v arcl was holding its annual night out 
in Kalo Hall trom about nine o'clock 
till midnight on January 16 is untrue. 
It waj merely the pledges submitting 
themselves to tho^e various and sunury 
privy processes known by the common- 
ers as initiation. Such, at least, is die 
comention of \v ilour bhro^er and his 
committee, and they snou.d know, the 
imps, for they arranged the eniire sm;- 
bang, as 'twere. 

Among the aftermaths, L hese sages 
say, will be an increasing veruure in the 
viciniiy of the may-po.e. v, i.en pressed 
for details they smcitered some syllo- 
gism or something about uob Spohn's 
loving care and co..scitntio t .s attention 
and rushed off. And, alas, though we 
questioned Louis Conrau, Hubert necK- 
man, Luther innmer, Haran Kinney, 
Ltaoin shrdlu Koenig (your pardon, old 
fellow, we couldn't reca.l your premier- 
piece of nomenclature), Clarence Leii 
man, Emil Ludwig, John Mover, J;u 
Musser, Robert Snikh, Robert Tilforu, 
Robert Spohn, and George Yokum, ail oi 
whom underwent and survived the affair, 
none of them seemed to be in the moou 
for elucidation. 



L-CLUB INITIATION 



The varsity "L" club Monday night ex- 
tended an invitation to those men who 
won their letters in footbal this past 
season to join their organization. F. Gru- 
ber, Brown, Kress, J. Davies, Buloia, 
Kniley, T. Rozman and Poloniak ac- 
cepted the invitation and in turn were 
accepted by the "L" club and initiated 
in the regular "L" club style.

Blithering Balderdash 



By Exenophon, the Stooge 



If we were you, we should not believe 
a word of what one of our colleagues 
c .ays when he tells you that Rudy and 
Judy flunked out. He is a man of high 
integrity and one with a large measure 
of human sympathy in his blooming 
heart, and we therefore suspect him of 
eupheumizing the situation just the least 
vestige or so. Of course, as situations go, 
this is a; delicate one, and fraught with 
privacy and all that sort of thing right 
up to the ears, so we really know very 
little more than the public. We do know, 
however, that a couple of North Hall 
Naiads were on their way to price some 
shot-guns when side tracked by the b. f. 
who. all unknowing, sweet innocent, was 
in company with the staff detective. 
When Judy heard about the firearms, she 
left town in a manner that can only be 
described as precipitated. Rudy followed 
on the next train. He would always be 
true, he said. Furthermore, he hates 
getting shot — so messy, you know. 
Meanwhile, the avenging angel com- 
mittee was borrowing the b. f.'s foun- 
tain pen to scrawl off a vitriolic letter 
to the editor, and alas, alas, such is the 
depth of depravity to which they have 
surk that they signed it Anonymous. 
What \3 this world coming to? We had 
a great deal of fun doping out the identi- 
ty of the guilty party; that disguised 
hand-writing was a nice touch — it con- 
tributed a lot to our enjoyment; and the 
elegant diction was another. If the au- 
thor will comply with the rules by com- 
ing arour.d and signing her brimstone 
brochure, we shall be just charmed to 
death to publish it for the delectation of 
the public. 

* ♦ * 

She concludes her sulphurous solilo- 
quy with a Burning Question which, in 
spite of policy, we can not help quoting 
— "Is Boyd Shaffer, the president, run- 
lirg the Sophomore class, or who ?" 

* * * 

We admit that last had even us 
■■tumped for a while. Finally, however, 
we decided that the best way to find out 
whether , it was Boyd or who that was 
running the Sophomore class was to ask 
hem about it. We could not find who, 
but -Boyd was in his room, and he 
daimed to have been wondering about 
he matter also. We request that future 
nquiries Miss— oo-la-la !, almost spilled 
t — be addresed to the question and an- 
wers department. 

* * * 

When we landed this columning job, 
we were supposed to get off at least, a 
dozen grade A epigrams per issue, but 
alas, since the demise of Huey Long 
we've had to cut the quota. If we want 
to get elected next fall, we can't make 
fun of the Townsenders, jokes about the 
depression are now passe, and all the 
puns having to do with Ethiopia and 
Mussolini have been exhausted. Roose- 
velt, of course, is always good for a 
laugh. And we'd forgotten that in Ad- 
dis Ababa they call II Duce Muscle-ini. 
But, aside from this there is very little 
can be said. There are some fairly good 
ones we can get off of on the subject 
of Herr Hitler's dislocated eye-brow, 
but unfortunately, he is not occupying a 
very noticeable portion of the public at- 
tention at present. 

* * # 

Did we ever tell you about Gloria 
Gray-matter who once asked us how 
many epigrams make a kilogram? She 
wanted to become an Attic philosopher 
and died of pneumonia contracted while 

reading Plato in the garret.

Some one writes in suggesting that we 
do a little piece on snow. Honesty forces 
us to confess that we have very little 
liking for snow — some narrow souls 
might even say we are prejudiced against 
the stuff — but we aim to please. Hence, 
the following: 

ON SNOW 
As a rule we do not like snow. It re- 
minds us of the time some one's darling 
brat draped a generous portion of slush 
over the posterior section of our anatomy 
and that we do not like to have snow 
draped over the posterior section of our 
anatomy. It is bad enough when it stays 
in the newsreel where it belongs, but 
when a whole flock of it breaks loose 
and starts running around the campus 
the time for drawing the line of de- 
marcation is far past. That such a con- 
dition can come to pass seems to us a 
•hocking example of negligence on be- 
half of the Men's Senate toward condi- 
tions on the campus. It is earnestly to be 
hoped that this reprisal will result in 
more stringent regulation with regard to 
;uch matters. 



Marion Leisey Attends 

Washington Conference 

(Continued From Page i) 



Cure of War which conducts an annual 
conference in Washington. 750 dele- 
gates, from all but four states of the 
Union, were present at this year's con- 
vention. 

The conference considered war and its 
cure from many angles. The chief topics 
of the program, which were discussed 
one by one on successive days, were : the 
causes of war, national defense, eco- 
nomic justice and readjustments, neu- 
trality and sanctions, international co- 
operation, and education of the mass 
mind. 

Among the prominent speakers were 
Carrie Chapman Catt, Mrs. Franklin D. 
Roosevelt, and Kathleen Courtney, or- 
ganizer of the British Women's Peace 
Crusade. The majority of the topics 
were discussed by round tables of sen- 
ators, congressmen, and members of in- 
ternational organizations. The club dis- 
cussed several of the issues debated at 
the conference. They considered the need 
for knowing the causes of war and hav- 
ing a strong public opinion to seek out 
the cures for these causes, then economic 
'ustice and neutrality.

Delta Lambda Dance 
At H-burg Saturday 

FORMAL NOT POSTPONED. 

president Gingrich Says All Final 
Plans Made For Anniversary. 



The 14th Delphian Anniversary dance 
j s scheduled for Saturday evening at the 
Jewish Community Center, in Harris- 
burg. Due to the impassable condition of 
the highways lately, it was feared that 
the dance might have to be postponed. 
However, as things have cleared up 
somewhat, everything will go forward as 
originally planned. 

For the convenience of those who may 
not know, the Community Center is lo- 
cated at 1 1 10 Third Street. Richards' 
Band Masters will play for dancing 
from 8 to 11 :30 for the guests who will 
include society members and their guests, 
alumni members, and faculty guests. The 
chaperones will include Dr. and Mrs. 
Lynch, Prof, and Mrs. Gingrich, Dr. and 
Mrs. Derickson, Miss Margaret Wood, 
and Dr. and Mrs. Richie. 

The Delta's Anniversary President, 
June Gingrich, has been hard at work 
to insure the success of the dance, and 
she will head the reception line on be- 
half of her society. Her supporting com- 
mittees, Place — Esther Flom, Sarah Peg 
Lupton, Orchestra — Charlotte Stabley, 
Favor— Cordelia Shaeffer, Agnes Morris, 
Program and Invitation — Earnestine 
Jagnesak, have likewise played a major 
part in planning the affair. Everything 
is in order for the second large formal 
dance of the current school year and 
all that remains to be done is to put the 
last finishing touches to that gown, to 
give the final adjustment to the black 
b ow tie, and— oh, yes— to make sure that 
the corsage has arrived ok and that 
there is enough gas in the old buggy.

Joint Session; Mothers' 
Week-End Planned by Clio 

Clio reverted to the traditional weekly 
meetings of the literary societies last 
Friday night by holding the first of a 
planned series of Friday night society 
programs. A large group of Clionians 
met in North Hall parlor because of an 
inadequacy of lights in Clio Hall. 

Jane Shellenberger, newly installed 
president, presided at a business meeting, 
during which the members of the society 
decided to have a tea during Mothers' 
Week-End, to make new curtains for the 
hall, and to arrange for a joint session 
in March. 

The program for the meeting was 
planned by Martha Faust, chairman of 
the judiciary committee. She introduced 
"Minerva's Twins," who were discovered 
to be none other than the Engle-Kirk- 
patrick dancing team tangoing and fox- 
trotting in their own inimitable style. A 
series of delightful games were then en- 
tered into by everyone with whole heart- 
ed enthusiasm. Prizes were awarded to 
those who were most clever in reading 
the balcony scene of "Romeo and Juliet", 
in sketching titles to illustrate books, in 
collecting famous historical and campus 
lovers, and in recognizing the names of 
well known people which were pinned 
on the back of every girl. 

All the members joined in expressing 
their approval of this most successful at- 
tempt to get Clionians together for an 
evening of fun among themselves. 



L. V. Women's Auxiliary 
Celebrate Anniversary 

Music And Lecture Mark Sixteenth 
Milestone. 



Tuesday, Feb. 11, the Women's Auxi- 
liary of Lebanon Valley College cele- 
brated their sixteenth birthday anni- 
versary in North Hall parlor. The open- 
ing devotions were conducted by Mrs. 
W. A. Wilt. 

Mrs. Green was chairman of the pro- 
gram committee. The program included 
vocal selections by Mildred Gangwer ac- 
companied by Ruth Goyne, xylophone 
selections including The Waltz and Trees 
by Emily Kindt accompanied by Irma 
Kieffer, and a talk on Home Life of 
Germany by Mrs. Margarete Kaiser- 
Harnisch. Later refreshments were 
served. 

There were about sixty in attendance 
and the birthday offering amounted to 
about twenty nine dollars.

Kalo, Delphian Select 
Joint Production Piece 



Barry Play Gains Votes Of Joint 
Committee. 



The joint committee of Kalo and 
Delphian has selected as its anniversary 
play "You and I", a comedy by Sir 
Philip Barry. Other plays which had 
been under consideration were "Liliom", 
by Ferenc Molnar, and "The Far-Off 
Hills", by Lennox Robinson. 

"You and I" is most suitable for a 
college audience since it discusses the 
age-old question of a choice between a 
career and marriage. The writing is in 
the vein of Noel Coward, sophisticated 
and clever, with, however, an element 
of seriousness which is not to be found 
in Coward's cynical mockery of con- 
temporary society. The characters are 
quite distinct, the blustering matter-of- 
fact business man mingling with the cul- 
tured artist, the round-the-world novelist, 
and the beautiful, dumb, and aspiring 
servant girl. 

Casting will be done this week and re- 
hearsals will start immediately. The 
members of the committee were Alice 
Richie, Anna Morrison, Sara Lupton, 
Claire Adams, Emma Mary Smyser, 
Wilbur Leech, Wilbur Schroyer, Joseph 
Harvey, Edgar Messersmith, and Robert 
Spohn. 



H.E.BEAMESDERFER 
DEVOTIONS SPEAKER 



Harold Beamesderfer, president of 
the L. V. Life Work Recruits, was the 
speaker at the student weekly prayer 
meeting held on the evening of February 
12, in Philokosmian Hall. For his topic 
he chose, "Christ and His Call." 

Elwood Needy led the devotional part 
of the service, choosing as his Scripture 
reading the account of the call of John 
and James, the sons of Zebedee. 



Reviewer Views Hollywood vs. Shakespeare 

as effective an earthquake as is permitted 
by the narrow confines of his tomb on

Although there is quite a ponderous 
slew of scholars who raise no inquiring 
eye-brow when one declares Shakespeare 
to have been perpetually canned during 
his desultory lifetime, it is probable that 
it was considerable of a shock to even 
these gentry to find him getting into 
that regrettable condition some three 
centuries odd after his interrment by the 
peaceful Avon. 

That much discussed bard, whatever 
the extent to which he is steeped in that 
which drowns all sorrows and corrugates 
most kidneys, is according to erudite 
conjecture, engaged just now in staging

L. W. R. Deputations 

The Life Work Recruits planned sev- 
eral deputations for Sunday, Feb. 9, in 
observance of National Education Day 
in the United Brethren Churches. Be- 
cause of the heavy snows and the dis- 
tance to travel, they were prevented 
from carrying out their plans. 

The delegations which planned to go 
to Lykens included: 

Harold E. Beamesderfer, Elwood E. 
Needy, Sarah M. Lupton, Evelyn Fri- 
dinger, and Virginia Neissner. 

Those going to Dallastown were: 

Calvin Reber, Mark Hostetter, Irene 
Rank, Mildred Gangwer. 

Louis Straub was also scheduled to 
preach at the West Fairview U. B. 
Church. 

Deputations for this coming Sunday, 
Feb. 16, will go to Steelton and York. 
Straub and Needy will be the preachers 
on these occasions. 



Henderson, Metoxen 

To Coach May Fete 



At a meeting of the YMCA cabinet 
last Tuesday evening, plans were drawn 
up in preparation for the annual May 
Day fete. After devotions, which were 
led by Louis Straub, a discussion en- 
sued which resulted in several resolu- 
tions in connection with the May Day 
procedure. Instead of having an out- 
sider as coach, the pageant will be di- 
rected by our very capable Women's 
Athletic director, Miss Henderson. She 
will be assisted by Coach Metoxen. 



Student-Faculty Council 
Plans For Active Future 



Abolition Of Grade-Posting Inaugu- 
rates New Policy. 



The Student-Faculty Council has been 
re-organized this year with the hope that 
it will become an active part of the cam- 
pus administration. It is composed of 
two members of each class, the president 
of the W. S. G. A., the president of the 
Men's Senate, and five faculty repre- 
sentatives. Professor Carmean was elect- 
ed chairman, and Maxine Early secretary 
of the organization. 

At the monthly meetings problems pre- 
sented to the council are discussed. It is 
the aim of the board to clear up any 
problems or dissatisfaction relating to 
student life that may arise. It has been 
successful in preventing the posting of 
grades, thus avoiding embarrassment. 
Any person desiring to present a com- 
plaint to this council should submit his 
petition to his class representative, who 
in turn will present it to the board, where 
the entire group will discuss the problem 
and make a fitting recommendation to 
the proper person concerned. The coun- 
cil earnestly desires the cooperation of 
the students in this matter. 

The faculty representation is com- 
posed of Miss Wood, Madame Green, 
Dr. Lietzau, Dr. Stonecipher, and Pro- 
fessor Carmean. The student representa- 
tives are Louise Gillan, Boyd Sponaugle, 
Virginia Britton, Robert Cassel, Maxine 
Earley, Dewey Unger, Jean McKeag, 
Curvin Dellinger, and Samuel Rutter. 
The freshman girl representative post 
is vacant at the present writing. 



Wig & Buckle Revives 
"Chris Bean" Comedy 

USE NEW STAGE EFFECT 

Plan To Enhance Lebanon Showing 
By Lights, Scenery. 



Local play-goers who enjoyed the 
highly successful Wig and Buckle pro- 
duction of last fall, the Late Christopher 
Bean, may now see it improved insofar 
as the visual beauty of the presentation 
is concerned by the use of the extensive 
collection of lighting equipment which 
was purchased mainly with the proceeds 
of the autumn performance. All effects, 
equipment, lights, and properties which 
are within the power of the Wig and 
Buckle to cart off will be transported to 
Lebanon for the indefinite engagement 
which begins next Monday evening, Feb. 
24 at St. Luke's Parish House. Even 
Hal Phillips, sine qua non of the local 
stage will be abducted, make-up kit, elec- 
trician's pliers and all and made to do 
the usual indispensable thousand or so 
items without which the superstitious 
company refuses to stage any perform- 
ance. 

Rehearsals are now under way both 
on the Lebanon stage and in the college 
chapel on which a considerably more ex- 
pansive interpretation can be given be- 
cause space is not at quite so large a 
premium here. However, the exigencies 
encountered in preparing the vehicle for 
the Lebanon performance have been met 
in numerous novel ways, some of which 
throw fresh illumination on the moti- 
viations under which various characters 
are acting. 

Members of the staff of La Vie 
dropped in on a rehearsal held recently 
in Lebanon and found the proceedings 
arrived at just about the moment when 
Warren, the young artist-paper-hanger 
and Susie, Dr. Haggett's youngest and 
prettiest daughter first discover love's 
young dream. Ah, 'tis a tense moment! 
There is (happenchance) no soul on the 
stage save the important two. 

Says Warren, "Guess I oughta kiss 
you." 

Says Susie, "Why?" (Passively) 

Replies Warren, "Well, I guess bein' 
kissed 'ul make you stop some 0' your 
nonsense." 

Replies Susie, "I guess it would." 

They clinch. 

We watched these doings from the 
back of the auditorium and consequently 
were amazed to hear sounds amazingly 
like the demonstrations the gallery rab- 
ble are wont to produce issuing from the 
balcony. Gazing above our astonished 
eyes, we beheld the rest of the cast tak- 
ing a busman's holiday panning the 
show. These acting people!

Hollywood vs. Shakespeare 



(Continued From Page 1) 



under auspices of La Vie). 

The publicity man who dashed off that 
slightly startling bit of advertising anim- 
adversion, in all probability mistook for 
imagination the fatuously amusing flight 
of fancy by which the casting people on 
the Warner Brothers' whirligig selected 
Mr. Powell of the inane smirk and the 
penny-whistle singing voice to play Ly- 
sander, and the Brown person to cavort 
about in the name of Flute. 

To establish the impeccability of our 
taste in cinema, know all by this token 
that our feeling toward Mr. Powell, is 
one of the most devoted and steadfast 



dislike and that, if he had asked us, 
which he hadn't, we should have strongly 
advised the capricious Joseph E. to stick 
to baseball. Howso that may be, we 
determined to be as sympathetic to the 
interpretations rendered by these two 
gentlemen as the rather flexible standards 
of criticism would allow without forth- 
right disregard for the nuisance of vera- 
city, and accordingly were pleased to 
discover that Mr. Powell not only re- 
frained from wheezing a popular tune 
in his well-known asthmatic tenor, but 
even, as long as he stuck to the tradi- 
tional method of reading Shakespearian 
pentameter, achieved some renditions of 
startling clear discernment. Seldom, in 
fact, have we heard certain lines spoken 
with so clear a delineation of meaning. 
However, even more seldom have been 
the occasions on which the complicated 
activities promulgated by the machina- 
tions of one Puck received worse treat- 
ment from less apt hands. 

But, try as we may and have, we 
can find nothing more pleasant to say of 
Mr. Brown than that he had the graci- 
ousness to play with a role which re- 
quired his presence on the screen for very 
short periods only. 

And, despite the fact that large num- 
bers of ladies on the campus beneath

whose baleful, if somewhat sentimental 
glare these dastardly remarks are fated 
to fall, will most certainly cut us dead 
for days and days when they read this, 
we can not help adding that none of the 
children of the ensemble or cast im- 
pressed us extremely and that Master 
Rooney in the role of Puck was distinctly 
out of tune with the general key-note of 
the play. If there was a key-note, it 
was one of playful fantasy, and one in 
which quite a number of beautiful, 
though for the most part, not quite con- 
secutive chords were struck. Mickey's 
rather idiotic cackling was, by contrast, 
an annoying discord. 

Also, we think, if the scissors in the 
cutting room had gone snip-snip more 
frequently and wisely, matters might 
have been improved. Aside from these 
piddling imperfections, though, there 
was little on which to exercise our en- 
nui sigh no. 2, genus bored-stiffus. A 
complete departure from all precedents in 
motion picture technique, the affair was, 
as a whole, quite charming One almost 
is compelled to devise new standards of 
judgment to criticize what is undoubtedly 
the first step in an advance in the cinema 
d'arte. We see no reason why we should 
deny having been quite enchanted by the 
sylvan fantasty of the ballet scenes. 
They quite refuted the now slightly ven- 
erable nonsense about realism, and for 
the afternoon, at least, made us incurable 
romantics. 

This speaks highly for illusory powers 
of Victor Jory's Obcron and Anita 
Louise's Titania, for in spite of the ob- 
stacles thrown in their path by Messrs. 
Powell and Brown, they set a motif of 
a certain delightful unreality in which 
we were quite charmed to revel for a 
time. 

Mr. Cagney, concerning whom we had 
certain preconceive^ ideas concerning 
which it is hardly necessary to go into 
detail here, surprised us agreeably by 
demonstrating how dextrously he can 
handle a situation totally foreign to any 
in which he has previously found him- 
self. He contributed to the glamour of 
the production, though not remarkably. 

Aside from the persons whom we have 
already cited, there were none among the 
company whose work was either out- 
standingly good or bad enough to rate 
individual mention. Instead of being a 
display of individual virtuosity badly 
harmonised, as so many similarly casted 
films are, Midsumer Night's Dream, save 
in the particulars we have mentioned, 
was, though not nearly Shakespearian, 
a harmonious, and mostly successful 
first attempt in a new approach to an al- 
most new type of subject matter in the 
1,1 ms. Although we disagree with most 
of the snooty gentlemen who write the 
New York reviews when wc say so, we 
liked the thing. 



The Clerk Of Oxenford 



— gladly wolde he lerne and gladly teche 



Last night, while reading a tale of 
that vast mysterious land of Asia, 1 
came upon a passage which seemed to 
me particularly beautiful and thought- 
provoking. It was a conversation be- 
tween the writer and his Persian guide 
who had stopped to rest in a sand-blown 
tamarisk grove near the border of Af- 
ghanistan. "The Persian was chanting 
to himself incessantly. Finally I asked, 
'What is that poem you are singing?' 

'From the Shah-nama,' he said in a 
pleased effeminate tone, 'A very beauti- 
ful poem. I know it all by heart.' 

'What is the story?' 

'It tells how the lovely Princess Ruda- 
bal let down her hair from a tower so 
that her lover, Prince Zal, might climb 
up and make love to her.' 

T like that story.' 

'Ah, yes,' he said anxiously, 'it is a 
tender story. But dead, dead. The world 
has changed. How well I know it! Men 
are no longer loving and compassionate.' 

'We have the same story in the West. 
But they have different names, of course.' 

'What was the princess' name in the 
Western story?' 

'Rapunzel.' 

He pursed his lips. 'An ugly name.' 



'Rut a beautiful princess.' 

T doubt it. No Western women 
beautiful. They are coarse. Like ^ 
No gentleness, no patience. Men sh 1 ^ 11 
be warriors; women should be an ■ 
That is the only way.'" 8eis ' 

Later the same night, I was 
through some faded, time-stained 



left, ' 



written by a long-dead relative of ' tS 
and addressed now to his "Cheri 1 ' 
Companion," and again to "My q 
Dear Ellie" or to "My Esteemed tyjj , 
He writes at different times from dist 
cities: "I trust that the day is 



distant when I will occupy some 



not far 



othe r 



position that will enable me to devot 
more of my time to your care." . | 
well know your thoughts are all on m 



and so they should be; so are min e 
you, and so they should be ; thus you ^ 
see that we are well wedded . . . ^ 
forget the button for my vest." . t | 



trust you will manifest the same 



spirit 



of firmness, as I have every reason to 
believe has characterized you since I 
you, and for the sake of one, who pi aces 
his all on you, 1 charge you to keep Up 
your courage throughout the battle, with 
which I know you will be successful if 
you make a determination to combat it, 
and when I next see you and (you) cod. 
vince me of your victory, I will prove to 
you that you have learned my lesson 
well." ... "I know if I am successful it 
will be an excellent opportunity for ad- 
vancing my reputation — thus far I have 
been very successful and trust that ere 
long I will have the opportunity of pass- 
ing many pleasant hours with my be- 
loved." 

Here were a warrior and an angel, 1 
loving and compassionate man and a 
beautiful woman. The Persian would 
have loved them. But Prince Zal and his 
lively Princess Rudabal are dead. Our 
women are no longer angels, but dolls; 
our men no longer warriors, but scare- 
crows.

Lebanon Valley Loses 
In Two League Tilts 



AL BRIGHT 



DREXEL WIN 



I- 



V C. in Cellar Position In College 
Basketball Loop. 



Lebanon Valley's basketeers sank a 
1,'t deeper into the cellar of the Eastern 
Pennsylvania Collegiate League during 
the P aS t wee ^ w ' ien t ne y suffered defeats 
,t the hands of Albright and Drexel, the 
Lions winning, 39-29, at Reading, and 
the Drexelites winning, 44-35, at Leba- 
non. 

\gainst Albright the Blue and White 
attack was particularly impotent during 
the first half. The Lions ran up a score 
f 23 to 11 during the opening session, 
bu t were outscored by the Metoxenmen, 
18 to 16> in the second half. 

L, V. C rallied temporarily at the 
start of the final stanza to come within 
tw0 points of deadlocking the count, 
however, Albright's quintet put on a re- 
taliatory spurt and stepped away from 
the Valleyites, never again to be threat- 
ened throughout the remainder of the 



The Albright five outscored the Flying 
Dutchmen from the field, l(i to 12, in the 
contest, which was rather sloppily played 
at times. The victors' points were evenly 
distributed among five of the Lion bas- 
keteers, with Becker leading with nine 
points. Slingerland, Oslislo, Woods, and 
Riffle all scored a half dozen counters 
or more. 

Paul Billett again led the scoring at- 
tack of the Valleyites by deadlocking 
Becker at nine points for the high scor- 
ing honors for the evening. Kroske tossed 
a trio of two-pointers to contribute hea- 
vily to the Blue and White total. Many 
substitutes were used by both teams in 
an effort to find a smooth-running at- 
tack, but for the most part the struggle 
was marked by loose play. 

In their second contest last week, the 
Blue and White quintet was once again 
submerged, this time by the Drexel Dra- 
gons, who had a distinctly "on" night in- 
sofar as marksmanship was concerned. 
Paynes and Donaldson particularly scin- 
tillated in the accurate-shooting perform- 
ance of the Drexelites, these two veter- 
ans racking up a total of 23 points? 
mainly on non-stoppable one-handed 
st abs from sidecourt or near the foul 
hue. 

Lebanon Valley led at the intermis- 
sion, 19 to 17, after a well-played and 
cl °sely-contested first half. However,

Raynes put on their two-man act, the 
former counting twice on one-handed 
sidecourt shots and the latter putting 
the game on ice with a trio of twin- 
counters. The Dragons stepped up their 
margin to 42-28 during the rally as they 
tallied fourteen points while L. V. C. 
could register but two. The final score 
favored the Philadelphians by a nine- 
point margin, 44-35. 

Aungst turned in his best performance 
of the year to lead the scoring for the 
evening with fifteen points, practically 
all of them scored on tap-in shots under 
the basket. The tall center's five second- 
half field goals kept L. V. C. in the run- 
ning. Paul Billett scored the first five 
points for the Blue and White, but was 
held to a single counter thereafter, while 
his brother, Ralph, was definitely "off" 
and missed a flock of shots while count- 
ing but two field chances.

crew tossed no less than twenty field 
goals and eleven fouls, while the Red 
and White Frosh counted seventeen 
times from the field and ten times from 
the free-throw line. 

The Frosh-Long's game amounted to 
little more than a bit of shooting prac- 
tice for the Valleyites. With Frey and 
Kress leading the attack with fifteen 
points apiece, the Frosh smothered the 
city leaguers beneath a deluge of field 
goals and won very much as they pleased, 
the final score being 46 to 18. The Fly- 
ing Frosh fell four points short of their 
usual fifty-point total, but nevertheless 
had the game well in hand from start to 
finish.

Bartlett Leads Y. W. 

In Sunday Discussion 



Friendly Hour last Sunday night in 
North Hall parlor was a brief devotional 
service led by North Hall girls. A scrip- 
ture was read by Arlene Hoffman and 
prayers were offered by Catherine Law- 
son. Ruth Buck played a piano solo, af- 
ter which Helen Bartlett read a poem, 
Little Things by Browning, and led a 
discussion on the subject of "Molehills 
and Mountains." She emphasized the 
little things which can make such a dif- 
ference in one's life. Martha Faust 
planned the program. 



MORE GOOD TIPS 

Every once in a while someone 
thinks of a change which can be made 
in order that living here may be more 
convenient and pleasant. Such :i 
change was suggested by the senior 
girls of North Hall a few weeks ago, 
and acted upon almost immediately, 
'i he pay telephone was moved from 
!lr.' "Y" room downstairs to a closet 
at the head of the stairs on third 
floor. The closet is large enough to 
make a very convenient telephone 
booth, and has already proved satis- 
factory, since all the girls in the hall 
now have ready access to the phone. 
Thanks, seniors! More suggestions 
of this type which prove to be of 
general benefit make college dormi- 
tories just that much more liveable. 



Campus Cuts 

Since there has been so much snow 
for the past several weeks, and because 
it has been the subject of so much dis- 
cussion, La Vie sent a correspondent to 
interview a number of our campus folks 
for comments about the weather. 

The question in each case was the 
same: "What do you think of the snow?" 
The following is a list of some of the 
answers, and those giving them : 

Helen Bartlett : "It's very nice and 
pretty"— (grrr !). 

Virginia Britton: "Why do you ask?" 

William Clark : "This present layer 
of wintry white is beyond all doubt char- 
acterized by exceptional and unwar- 
ranted longevity." 

Virginia Summers : "I think it's mean ! 
It makes the hopping between Annville 
and Crozer Seminary too difficult." 

Betty Bender: "Huh?" 

Bunny Zamoiski: "I think he's divine 
— what's that? Ah, pardon me, I thought 
you said Joe."

North, South, West Halls 
End Heart Sister Week 



Secret Helpmates Disclosed At Teas 
Sunday Evening. 



Originality, kindliness, and secrecy 
characterized the annual North Hall 
Heart Sister Week, which opened Mon- 
day, Feb. io, and ended Sunday, Feb. 
16 with a tea. Monday, heart-sisters were 
distributed to each girl by drawing 
names; each girl to do something nice 
for her heart-sister everyday that week. 
This deed could be of the utilitarian na- 
ture, or a gift of some sort. Beds were 
made magically in the owner's absence, 
rooms became cleaned and straightened, 
clothes pressed and cleaned, mysterious 
packages graced the desks and bureaus 
unexpectedly, intricate treasure hunts led 
the recipients of the rewards prancing 
all over the dormitory, poetry flourished, 
and in general a joyous time was had by 
all. 

Friday, Valentine's Day, was one of 
extra nice deeds and presents. Handker- 
chiefs, jig-saw puzzles, stationery, pic- 
tures, and candy were among the gifts 
received. Sunday climaxed the week- 
lovely gifts were presented the last day 
too— corsages, handkerchiefs, stationery, 
and candy included. The main event of 
the day was a tea, at which the names 
were disclosed in an original manner. A 
girl was served and she in turn served 
her heart sister, thus, the circle went until 
all were disclosed. Many surprises were 
in store for some young ladies. Some 
roommates were heart-sisters (involving 
fun and difficulties), mere acquaintances 
grew to know each other better, and 
good friends became beter friends. All 
in all, it was a cozy, friendly arrange- 
ment in which everyone enjoyed himself. 

At West Hall 

In West Hall heart-sister week of 1936 
was the same happy, busy, whisper-full 
week as it has been in former years. Al- 
though there is no way of measuring 
such things, it is generally believed thai 
Evelyn Freidinger was more pleased than 
anyone with the activities of her heart 
sister — she was given a picture of Clark 
Gable. 

The week was terminated by a tea 
Sunday afternoon. After the heart-sis- 
ters had been disclosed, Miss Lietzau ex- 
tended an invitation to the girls to a 
party in her room on the following Wed- 
nesday. Miss Lietzau suggested that they 
come early in order that they have time 
to play Monopoly, have refreshments, and 
hear some stories about her adventures 
in Germany last summer. The girls all 
hoped that the stories would be as en- 
tertaining and amusing as one she had 
told during the course of the tea. 

At South Hall 

Heart-sister week was brought to a 
successful close at South Hall by a tea 
on bunday afternoon at which the heart 
sisters were revealed. And great was the 
surprise thereof ! Two girls discovered 
that they had each other for heart sisters. 
One poor girl discovered that she had 
sold a bar of soap back to the girl who 
had given it to her. The girls expressed 
their appreciation for the gifts and 
thoughtiulness of their heart-sisters dur- 
ing the week. Miss Richardson was an 
interested spectator.

We regret to report that our public is 
not up to her usual standard. A whole 
week has gone by since last this column 
rolled off the one-and-a-half -volt-mo- 
tored presses and nary a single cal- 
umniating letter in the mail. Probably 
our dotage is creeping upon us — whereas 
once our words turned the wrath of the 
mob against us, we now excite their 
sneering laughter, we guess. Perhaps we 
are becoming mellow or something — keg- 
ripened, one of our smart-alec colleagues 
observes. If he'd stick to writing head- 
lines instead of looking over our shoulder 
he'd never know. After all, what's Win- 
ched have that we haven't? A typewriter 
that doesn't do a spring dance every 
time you touch the space bar, for one 
thing. 

* * * * 

We dropped in on the First Command- 
ment, the somewhat didactic affair which 
the Rescue Fire Co. used as an excuse 
for luring Miss Helen Anderson into 
their perhaps too lightly laved lair. Wo- 
men have a way with us and we tried to 
follow her around, but she knows how to 
elude our ilk, she does ; she put on false 
whiskers every time we struck the trail 
and threw us off. Then just when we 
got the drift, she turned a corner and 
started back the other way with a hir- 
sute appendage of a different color. For 
an act or so we thought she had contract- 
ed a bad case of multiplied identity, but 
then gradually the light of realization 
broke the fog in which we dwelt. The 
lady was not playing a double role — 
that's left to amateurs; a triple, then? 
Or a quadruple, perhaps? Mere piker 
stuff. The falsebearded lady played at 
least one role in every scene except the 
last one ; and she turned on the lights for 
that. 

* • * * 

Somehow, we got ourselves tangled in 
with the thing and did a role or two be- 
fore anyone caught us. '*You were 
lousy," she said, "practically putrid." 
We liked that — it is always refreshing 
to have one's personal opinions confirmed 
by some one who knows more about 
things than one does one's self. Our 
girl friend, on the other hand, told us 
vve were just-grand-honestly-I-was-so- 
thrilled etc. So we demonstrated by let- 
ting her pay for the sundaes. 

* * * * 

We congratulate Miss Anderson on 
the skill with which she eluded the local 
boors' club, that is, the roving-male boys 
who, instead of spending their time do- 
ing worthwhile things like reading our 
edifying and instructive lucubrations, 
stalk as fair game all eligible members 
of the f. s. Some may laugh knowingly 
at this last, but we beg to remind them 
that he who laughs last gets a dirty look 
from everybody in the theatre. Our 
friend Mr. Tilford, all unknown to her, 
is strewn among the wreckage in her 
wake. And others. 

One of our professional attainments 
being that of a fairly good misogynist — 
one reasonably indifferent to the attrac- 
tions of feminine half to the gentlemen 
in the gallery — we managed not to fall 
prey. Nevertheless we would gladly 
have worked our fingernails quite to the 
cuticle for her. She is that kind of per- 
son and it was disappointing to find she 

wouldn't let us. 

» * # » 

Which leaves us with precisely nothing 
about which to talk for the rest of this 
column. Except, of course, the swarthy 
man on the trolley car in Harrisburg. He 
sat in front of us, and since there is 
very little one can do conveniently in a 
street car, we did what we could, which 
was to look over his shoulder at the let- 
ter he was reading. It required the ex- 
ercise of not a little patience and phy- 
sical discomfort to juxtapose our muscles 
and things in such a manner as to en- 
able us to see without being seen. When 
we finally attained this end, however, we

transfer of what has been learned to

Students Hold Service 
AtU.B. Church Sunday 



Sara 



h Lupton, Strauo Speaks As Col- 



lege 



Musicians Participate. 



The evening worship service at the 

,l eee church this past Lord's, day was 
the hands of L. V. C. students. The 
church pastor, Dr. Wilt, conducted the 
services but the program was devoted to 
full participation, with the exception of 
th U e anthem, by college and conservatory 
stu dents Miller Schmuck led the prayer 
{ the evening and following the prayer 
He le„ Butterwick played a violin solo, 
accompanied by Miss Mildred Meyers, 
church organist. After an anthem by 
the church choir Karl Schmidt gave a 
clarinet solo. 

The addresses of the evening were 
given by Sarah Lupton and Louis Straub, 
who spoke briefly on the topic of What 
Lebanon Valley College Has Meant to 
Me. Miss Lupton spoke of her ideas of 
college before coming to L. V. C. and 
of how she sought advice of friends as 
to how and what to do at college, but 
found that after achieving college one 
must fit oneself into college life some- 
times against the advice of friends. Self- 
adjustment and orientation have been 
valuable lessons of her college life. The 
friendship of faculty and students that 
prevails in a small college such as L. V. 
C. was stressed by Miss Lupton who 
concluded her remarks by mentioning the 
advantages derived from participation in 
the religious and social groups and ac- 
tivities on Lebanon Valley's campus. 

To Mr. Straub, college has been the 
fulfillment or materialization of a dream 
and this realization of a vision has been 
made possible through a sacrifice of 
others. This materialization, which is 
college, is an avenue of preparation for 
his work, and such preparation, he states, 
is most essential for the minister today. 
The modern preacher must be an educa- 
tional challenge to any member of his 
church according to Straub. A college 
education in a Christian school such as 
Lebanon Valley will be an answer to 
that challenge. 

After these addresses Rose Tschopp, 
soprano, contributed further to the serv- 
ice by rendering a splendid solo. Many 
students from the college attended this 
educational day program which had been 
Postponed from Feb. g on account of the 
'"clement weather prevailing at that time.

Life Work Recruit Meeting 

"Our Heritage" was the subject of an 
address presented by Mark Hostetter to

church. John McCune led in devotions 
followed by a piano selection by Robert 
Glippinger. At the meeting plans were

Seniors Lose Austerity 
In Tea At President's 



Upperclassmen Vie Solemnly At Mon- 
opoly And Jig-Saws. 



The seniors were the guests of Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Lynch at a delightful 
tea on the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 
20. 

The guests were highly entertained by 
various games, mingling cries of "good 
shot !" "Hand over that $28 rent for 
using my B. & O. Railroad" ; "Now I 
can take your 'ham' with an 's'." Several 
of the more intellectual even matched 
brain power by indulging in checkers. 
Jig-saw puzzle addicts were assembling 
Martha Ross. 

It seemed only a few minutes later 
when Madame Green announced the pro- 
gram, which consisted of a violin solo by 
Helen Butterwick and two delightful 
vocal solos by Jean Marbarger. 

After a few minutes more of divert- 
ing games, appetizing refreshments were 
served. Mrs. Gingrich and Miss Moyer 
poured, while sophomore girls, as "col- 
lege cousins" of the seniors, served the 
many varieties of cakes, cookies, and 
candies. A clever feature was the candy 
cherries arranged on trees to celebrate 
George Washington's birthday. An in- 
teresting sight was that of a group of 
dignified ministerial students manipulat- 
ing to extract th"e marshmallow from 
their cocoa without the use of spoons. 

Finally, after incredulous glances at 
watches, the guests reluctantly returned 
to their haunts remarking about the 
celerity of tempus' fugiting and the per- 
fect entertainment of the afternoon. 



Prayer Meeting 



The student prayer meeting held in 
Philokosmian hall on the evening of Feb. 
19 was well attended, twenty-seven being 
present. Rae Anna Reber presented a 
vocal number entitled An Evening 
Prayer by Gaberiel. She was accom- 
panied at the piano by Irma Kieffer. The 
talk of the evening was given by Gayle 
Mountz. She chose as her topic Op- 
portunity. Miss Mountz built her address 
around the central throught that the 
routine of everyday life offers countless 
opportunities for services to one's friends 
and associate!. 



Dr. Shenh Delivers 

Historical Addresses 

George Washington Is Subject Fo r 
Two Anniversary Speeches. 



On Sunday, February 23, Dr. Shenk 
gave two addresses concerning the life 
and character of that immortal states- 
man, George Washington. At 9:30 o'clock 
in the morning he addressed the high 
school group of the Hershey Industrial 
School in the community theater at Her- 
shey. 

His topic, "The Boyhood of Washing- 
ton," in which he pointed out the impor- 
tant incidents and amusing situations m 
the early life of the man, was well pre- 
sented by Dr. Shenk, and well accepted 
by his appreciative audience of high 
school boys. 

At 3:00 o'clock that afternoon at the 
regular Sunday service in the theater, 
Dr. Shenk spoke on "Washington." 

In the course of his speech he showed 
that Washington was the outstanding 
figure in four movements of more than 
national significance in the last half of 
the eighteenth century. These movements 
according to Dr. Shenk, were the French 
and Indian War, the American Revolu- 
tion, the adoption of the Constitution of 
the United States and Washington's po- 
sition as the first president of the United 
States. 

Quoting Dr. Shenk, "Washington as a 
soldier and statesman set the standard 
of rulers for centuries to come, showing 
unsurpassed characteristics of prudence, 
integrity, justice, and mercy." 



Flying Freshmen Win 
Two Basketball Tilts 



F. & M. Frosh and Harrisburg Cath- 
olics Are Victims. 



Lebanon Valley's undefeated Frosh 
courtsters extended their win streak to 
nine games by defeating the Harrisburg 
Catholic High quintet on Monday night 
at Harrisburg, the final score standing 
42 to 36 in favor of the Blue and White. 

The parochial school lads built up a 
21-16 advantage during the first half of 
play but could not maintain their lead 
during the third and fourth periods 
when the high-scoring Flying Freshmen 
started to click. 

Raymie Frey led the Frosh in scoring 
with eighteen points, with Kress con- 
tributing ten, Rozman eight, and Brown 
six as the Valleyites continued their 
sensational play. Pilsitz was a one-man 
wrecking crew for the Harrisburgers, 
registering ten twin-counters and a trio 
of free throws for 23 points and high- 
scoring honors for the evening. 

Last Wednesday night the Frosh sub- 
dued the F. & M. Frosh for the second 
time this year, the score standing 45 to 
40 in favor of the fast-traveling Blue 
and White when the final whistle sound- 
ed. Frey was again high scorer for 
L. V. C, this time with a total of 21 
points scored on eight field goals and 
five fouls. Rozman and Kress also con- 
tributed heavily to the Frosh point total. 
Asplin was the big gun in the F. & M. 
attack with five goals of each variety 
for fifteen points. The five-point margin 
of victory represented the closest call

Kalo-Delphian Decide 
On Barry's "You and I" 

Dr. Struble Assisted By Phillips Will 
Direct Enthusiastic Cast. 



After several meetings of the Del- 
phian-Kalo play committees, a decision 
was finally reached in favor of Philip 
Barry's three-act comedy, "You and I." 
This play holds a special significance to 
all college students as it drives home to 
them a point which is not unknown to 
them. 

The plot deals with a young man who 
has to make one of the greatest deci- 
sions of his life, either that of a married 
life with a woman he is very much in 
love with, or a career in which he is sure 
to become a great success. His father in 
his younger years had been confronted 
with the same problem, and had chosen 
married life with a woman who had been 
all that he ever hoped to have and more. 
Maitland White could not regret his de- 
cision, for he had to admit that his mar- 
ried life had been a very happy one. 

The decision of the younger White re- 
mains to be found out. The play in- 
volves good action, excellent character 
studies and human interest appeal. 

The following is the cast which was 
chosen after two try-outs held Wednes-

Women Debaters Meet 
Kutztown S. T. College 

L. V. Affirmative Loses 2-1; No De- 
cision At Negative Contest. 



The Lebanon Valley Women's debate 
team met the Kutztown State Teachers 
College team in a dual debate last Thurs- 
day evening. At Lebanon Valley, the 
home affirmative team lost by a 2-1 deci- 
sion on the Supreme Court question. At 
Kutztown, the contest was a non-decision 
type. 

The campus debate was held in Philo 
Hall and was attended by a large num- 
ber of students. The keen knowledge of 
the subject and the fine presentation of 
the Lebanon Valley girls caused con- 
siderable disagreement of the judges' 
decisions. 

The affirmative team is composed of 
Marion Leisey and Louise Gillan, with 
Winona Shroff as alternate. Due to the 
illness of Louise Gillan, Winona Shroff 
was the first speaker. The judges were:

Last Minute Difficulties Fail To Halt 
Affair; Many Faculty Members 
Present. 



Last Saturday a situation unique in 
the annals of Lebanon Valley society 
social functions confronted the members 
of Delphian Literary Society. The same 
evening the 14th Anniversary Dance of 
the society was scheduled to take place 
at the Jewish Community Center ball- 
room, in Harrisburg. Saturday morning 
June Gingrich, president of Delphian, re- 
ceived a telephone call from the leader 
of Richard's Band Masters, the orchestra 
engaged for the dance, informing her 
that the Harrisburg Musicians Associa- 
tion had ordered him not to perform his 
contract to provide music for the affair. 

A series of telephone conversations 
with Mr. Ralph Felser, secretary of the 
Harrisburg union, revealed that the Com- 
munity Center had been black-listed the 
day before because of a dispute over the 
hirir.g of stage hands at a performance 
in the Community Theatre. When the 
secretary was made to understand that 
his organization could not interfere with 
the entirely innocent Delphians without 
incurring a legal liability, he advised the 
Delphian president not to call off the 
dance but to hold it as scheduled and 
drat they would agree on a solution at 
a conference in Harrisburg just before 
the dance. He also advised the engaged 
orchestra to appear at the ballroom pre- 
pared to play. 

At the Harrisburg conference at 7:30 
the local union secretary repeated an at- 
tempt to have the dance switched to an- 
other ballroom which he named and 
which was not black-listed. The Delphian 
president, along with Attorney C. R. Gin- 
grich and a La Vie Collegienne re- 
porter, inspected the proferred place 
which proved to be much smaller than at 
the Community Center and wholly un- 
suitable. Miss Gingrich also pointed out 
that the special lighting equipment which 
had been installed in the first ballroom 
probably could not be moved in time and 
then only at great expense. 

With this proposal rejected the union 
secretary had no other solution to offer 
stating that the black-listing was an or- 
der from the union national headquarters 
and that he could not extend the dead- 
line even 24 hours. By this time it was 
too late to move the dance to any other 
place as most of the guests had arrived.

We Take It Again 



Last Saturday the Delphian Literary Society was given a raw deal. With only 
a few hours notice the building in which they were to hold their anniversary dance 
was biack-listed by the musicians union making it impossible for any good or- 
chestra to play there. No matter whose fault it was it is quite evident that Del- 
phian was entirely blameless, ihe lact is that the Harrisburg Musicians' Asso- 
ciation knew days before this that the Jewish Community Center was to be black- 
listed and it is entirely conceivable that the officials ot the Community Center 
must have known also. Yet nerther the society nor the orchestra they had engaged 
(^not a Harrisburg orchestra,) were informed of the state of affairs until the day 
of the dance. 

On Monday evening, the Wig and Buckle club staged "The Late Christopher 
Bean " on a stage unsuitable for their purpose merely because they were not granted 
the use of a bigger and more suitable auditorium tor apparently no reason at all. 
As iar as we Know no protest was made in this matter. 

it seems to us like it's getting to be a habit for Lebanon Valley organizations 
to get a raw deal in their affairs with absolutely nothing being done in their de- 
fence. What happened to these two groups might happen to any groups on the 
campus. It is just about time that the whole school do something about occurrences 
iiKe this and at least let the general public know that wnen our organizations gel 
tramped on we as a school resent it. 

A Little Interest— Very Little 

When the Wig and Buckle Club repeated The Late Christopher Bean at the 
St. Luke's Parish nuuse monday evening, there was a notable lack of support from 
our own student body. According to reports, there was one L. V. C. student pres- 
ent, and she had received her ticket as a gift. 

Of course a large part of the college saw the play when it was produced the 
first time on the campus, but nevertheless there were many who did not. The play 
received very favorable comment on its lirst performance, and was really a delight- 
ful evenings entertainment for most anyone. 'Ihe second showing was well adver- 
tised and the proceeds went to several worthy causes. In spite of all this, students 
once more showed the same apathy that has characterized their attitude towards 
so many school projects this year, and let the college Thespians down flat. 

Our criticism is directed especially towards some of the resident Lebanon day 
students who neither attended either performance nor used any of the influence 
they might have had locally in order that a fair-sized house might have been a 
full house. May we add our voice to the growing chorus of critics who are deplor- 
ing the dearth of a true spirit of school interest that seems to have hit the campus. 

Attention Joe Bass 

During the last few years Washington has gradually become the North Pole in 
more ways than one. Following the legend that Santa Claus has his headquarters 
at the North Pole, we might easily say that he has changed from the northerly ex- 
treme to our capitol city. Yes, there is a Santa Claus. But now, let us consider. 
How is this Santa Claus capable of being so called:- He is bestowing on his friends 
and would-be constituency, presents worth billions of dollars. All that these 
friends have to do is prove that they are out of work and in a pre-ernptory way 
show that they are worthy of receiving these presents. Naturally, we can't expect 
Santa to undertake this gigantic thing without any support. But, who is making 
all this giving possible? Certainly not the generation at present engaged in running 



Blithering Balderdash 

by Sennacherib, ihe Sardine 
Pinch-Hitting for Xenophon, the Stooge 



It has befallen us to conduct the some- 
what disorderly affairs of this Xenophon 
person while he is enjoying a short vaca- 
tion at the Dauphin County Jail in Har- 
risburg. The Stooge reports that it is 
one of the nicest jails in which he has 
been incarcerated during a long and 
colorful career of being incarcerated in 
nice jails. The situation, he says, is 
somewhat confusing owing to the amaz- 
ing similarity of his present abode to 
the last one in which he was constrained 
to sojourn. In both places they turn off 
the heat at eleven p. m. and hook the 
water-heating gadget to the refrigeration 
plant at about five o'clock in the after- 
noon. It was really stupid of the chap 
to be crawling in a back window at the 
Delphian dance in Harrisburg just when 
a cop was coming down the alley, of 
course, but some one had asked him to 
find out a thing or two about what goes 
on at these formal affairs for the edifi- 
cation of you, gentle reader. Now his 
dope will never make the dead line (his 
dope, not he's dope). Sad! Sad! 
* * # 

There are several letters, one a short 
one in a copper-plate hand from an in- 
dignant young woman who wants to 
know what is the purpose of this de- 
partment. She uses large words and 
spells most of them wrong, but we can 
hardly shunt her off on the epizootic 
equerries of the epigram equipage for 
that. After all, the printer — we hope — 
does our spelling. So, since the dear girl 
writes as though she were stomping her 
feet with something most uncomfortable 
akin to emphasis we are minded to an- 
swer her, as witness you, we hereby do. 
Ladies who come into our office to slap 
our face and things like that disturb our 
mental poise ; sometimes it gets so bad 
we can't even concentrate. 

* * * * 

So, if tell we must, then thus we shall. 
Now that you mention it, we have no 
purpose in writing this column. Purposes 
with us tend to be small and get lost 
easily in the litter of a newspaper office, 
so we forego the luxury thereof. 

* * * * 

If any one has a nice large purpose — 
one about the size of a baby grand — 
though, which they don't need, we are in 
no wise averse to donations. Our only 
stipulation is that it come complete with 
dustcloth and furniture polish.

Mr. Xenophon has just called to see 
what we're doing about bail. And the 
editor is out trying to, hock the editorial 
watch to raise it — which leaves us with 
the beautiful little tisket-tasket of think- 
ing up things to criticize in two columns 
lull of editorials. 

* * * # 

By virtue of buying the sexton an ale 
we chiseled ourselves a seat backstage 
at the Wig and Buckle's revival of the 
Late Christopher Bean in Lebanon. We 
were thus enabled to view Hal Philips 
wearing a cast iron derby whilst pasting 
mustaches on people and painting Bob 
Spohn's hair with whatever the stuff is 



they put on radiators to keep them from 
rusting. He bought the sheet-iron cha- 
peau, he claims, from a ham actor who 
used it for protection. 

* * * * 

Arriving early as is our wont, we 
noticed the stage-hands consuming fresh 
pancakes with that malicious enthusiasm 
stage-hands display in such cases. Later, 
of course, duly horrified to view the 
unique contortions through which Mr. 
Spohn conducted his physiognomy, when, 
in the second act, he assayed to cut some 
hastily substituted left-overs from a re- 
hearsal held about eight days ago. The 
blacksmith reports that the knife can 
probably be straightened. 

* * * * 

The curtain, one of the vintage- 
variety which rise and fall, calls to 
mind a friend of ours who played Queen 
Elizabeth in Shaw's the Dark Lady of 
the Sonnets here several years ago when 
such a Mephistophelean machine was part 
of the college stage equipment. All went 
well even unto the bitter end when the 
Queen flung her majestic peroration out 
into the stalls with a final sweeping 
gesture. Having reached the zenith of 
said gesture (blithely, read the script) 
she flings back her head with arms still 
extended skyward until there falls 

A SWIFT CURTAIN 
Such is the perversity of curtains, 
however that the thing dropped a slug- 
gish foot or so and gave up. It had to 
be rescued via ladder — while the Queen

our country's affairs. No, it is we the younger generation who will have to pay 
for all these presents. At least that's the way it looks at present. However, we are 
hoping that Dame History will repeat herself in the respect that each generation 
has been able to get rid of its own debt made in emergency. 

As was said, we are hoping for the best, but, this hope dwindles to a minimum 
in view of the present situation. Our government is spending money and going 
into debt which is totally out of all proportion to any emergency debt formerly 
entered into. It seems highly improbable and almost impossible that this burden 
will he lifted from the taxpayer by the time that we shall have attained this posi- 
tion. That is our legacy. It is certainly no secret where this money is going. It 
has become the butt for much current comedy. For instance, one wag has said 
that it takes two men to do a government job— one to dilly and one to dally. And 
we will have to pay the tremendous debt imposed by paying wages for this dillying 
md dallying. In other words, we're the Joe Bass. This so evidently foolish spend- 
mg W going to leave us holding the bag, while the present runners of the govern- 
ment will be in quiet retirement, rubbing their hands with satisfaction at having 
killed the depression of the thirties. 



It seems to me that the greatest f auJt 
of our systems of justice is that th 
fail to recognize that the criminal either 
wished to secure happiness for himself 
as a result of his crime, or derived hi s 
happiness in the committment itself 
This first type of criminal, who has the 
warrantable end of happiness in view, i s 
usually a foundling of society, one who 
has been forsaken of love, deprived of 
kindness, and, as such, should be regard- 
ed by society as a just rebuke of it s 
own neglect and inhumanity, and should 
be nursed through his mental sickness to 
become a healthy comrade in performing 
the work of the world. The second type, 
the criminal who extracts his delight in 
the accomplishment of the unlawful deed, 
demands a more careful cure. If incur- 
able, he should be confined; but, by a 
scientific and psychologic treatment, 
many of this type might be saved. 

As the key to the mind of a criminal 
lies in a knowledge of what joy he seeks 
and how he seeks it, so the secret of liv- 
ing in harmony with others is merely in 
understanding and sympathizing with 
their ideas of happiness; for, most cer- 
tainly, there are no more divergent opin- 
ions held on any subject than those which 
arise in our separate "pursuits of hap- 
piness." There are those among us who 
delight in arriving at the solution of a 
difficult problem in mathematics; others 
derive greatest satisfaction in marvelling 
at the divine penetration of some poetic 
thought; those there are who revel in 
the magnificent evidences of nature or 
in the light-hearted joyousness of friend- 
ly gatherings; and so "each in his sep- 
arate star" reaches out toward infinite 
worlds of delight. And from this indi- 
vidual searching after "the land of the 
heart's desire" arises one of the most 
horrible of all evils— lack of sympathy 
or intolerance. The man who hates blind- 
ly without reason is the most despicable 
creature on the earth. 

But to return to our subject of hap- 
piness — there is one formula which at- 
serves to be considered by every one of 
us. It is that given by Edgar Allan P" e 
in The Domain of Arnheim. The "f° ur 
elementary principles of bliss" he lists 
are "free exercise in the open air; the 
love of woman (or man) ; the contempt 
of ambition; and an object of unceasing 
pursuit, the extent of attainable hapP 1 ' 
ness being in proportion to the spiritu- 
ality of this object." 

I know of no other code more admu" 
able than this one. If the world realiz ed 
its demands, the clouds of war wouU 
evaporate, peace and love would enter 
our hearts, we should indeed be "go»^ 
great and joyous, beautiful and fr ee ' 
By how much does this code differ f r01 " 
yours?

League scraps with F. & M. and Drex-

el nd ° 30-25 losses for the Flying Duteh- 
* and an extra-league game with 
yucknell at Harrisburg on Monday 
rOUght the Valleyites their sixth con- 
ecutive defeat, the score in this case fa- 
voring the Bisons, 50-34. 

L v. C. trailed the F. & M. Diplo- 
mats from start to finish in the game at 
Lancaster, although the scoring of the 
BOlett brothers and Aungst kept the 
Valleyites within striking distance if 
their opponents until late in the second 
half, when the league-leaders spurted to 
oMain a comfortable lead which carried 
them through to an overwhelming vic- 
tory. In the absence of Woody Sponau- 
sde, Diplomat high-scoring ace, Snyder 
took over the goal-procuring duties of 
his sick team-mate and counted no less 
than 21 points with nine field goals and 
three free tosses to lead the scoring for 
the evening. Offensively, the Billett 
brothers and Clarence Aungst led the 
Lebanon Valley attack, totaling 28 points 
between them. 

Against Drexel at Philadelphia Friday 
night, the Valleyites secured a first-half 
lead of four points and managed Lo 
maintain 'their advantage until late in 
the game. During the last five minutes 
of play the Dragons finally unleashed a 
determined attack and overtook the Blue 
and White passers to register their sixth 
league win of the season. Raynes and 
Donaldson, who led the Drexelites in 
their appearance against L. V. C. at 
Lebanon several weeks ago, were again 
top scorers for the Philadelphia outfit, 
although they were held to six and seven 
points. Paul Billett and Clarence Aungst 
snared individual scoring honors with 
10 and 13 points. 

At Madrid Palestra on Monday Buck- 
ne ll's Bisons displayed too speedy and 
too accurate-shooting un aggregation for 
V. C., and a second-half spurt gave 
the Bucknellians an overwhelming 50 to 
34 win over the Blue and White. L. V. 
tra iled at half time by a 22-13 count 
w hich was revised to 25-13 immediately 
af ter the second half action commenced.

L. V. C. Girls Lose 27-20 
To Moravian Basketeers 



Bethlehem Team Gains Lead In Fast 
Last Quarter. 

On Feb. 21 the Lebanon Valley girls 
basketball team journeyed to Bethlehem 
to lose to Moravian College for women 
27-20. 

Up until the last quarter the L. V. 
girls held the edge, but Moravian came 
back with a last minute spurt to top 
them. The first half was played with a 
center toss-up and the ball was in L. V.'s 
possession most of the time. The for- 
wards clicked perfectly, Marge Smith 
getting beautiful shots from all corners 
of the floor. Lebanon Valley led at the 
half 17 to 11. 

The second half, which was played 
with the toss-in gave Moravian more 
opportunity to receive the ball and score. 
High scorer was Smith with a total of 
to points. The line-ups were: 

Moravian L. V. 

Cronthamel R.F Smith 

Hinkle L.F Kreamer 

Beaver C Orth 

Y ans S.C Harkins 

Fabian R.G Weirick 

Leibfried L.G Binkley

tunes by Ozzie Nelson, Guy Lombardo, 
Glen Grey and Tommy Dorsey. The 
high-ceilinged ballroom with its hand- 
some pillars was made beautiful with 
novel lighting effects and was perfect 
for dancing. A large crystal ball cut 
with many facets reflected the light of 
three colored spotlights as it slowly re- 
volved giving the appearance of thous- 
ands of vari-colored bubbles floating 
through the atmosphere and furnishing 
the last touch of decoration and fascina- 
tion. 

Many of the faculty including Dr. and 
Mrs. Lynch attended, most of them chat- 
ting or playing games in an adjoining 
lounge. The evening, far from being 
disappointing, turned out to be one of the 
best times of the year with far more 
excitement for most of the guests than 
they had bargained for. The dance ended 
at the usual hour.

The pancakes used in the performance 
of The Late Christopher Bean last Mon- 
day night were very nearly the death of 
Bob Spohn, who had to eat them. Mrs. 
Struble had made some tempting ones 
just before the play, and they were all' 
in readiness, but somehow Sylva Harcle- 
rode served him with the ones that had 
been made several days earlier for dress 
rehearsal. List Bob among your favorite 
tlie-play-must-go-on heroes.

Dick Bans was duly initiated as as-

The entire cast gives a vote of thanks 
to Mrs. Struble for the delicious supper 

that she prepared for them.

Another thing that the cast wishes to 
express its gratitude about is the pres- 
ence of the one L. V. C. student who 
condescended to attend.

The staging crew took along the dim- 
mers and hooked them up. The surprise 
of the audience was so great that as the 
lights gradually became dimmer, their 
mouths gradually opened wider and wid- 
er. Yes, total darkness came in time to 
avoid too many cases of dislocated jaws.

The casting of Anna Morrison with 
Bob Spohn is getting to be a habit. First 
they appeared as Dr. and Mrs. Hagget, 
and now in You and I, the Kalo-Del- 
pliian play, they are casted as Mr. and 
Mrs. White.

which has not as yet been chosen, wii.1

L W. R. Hold Banquet 
In Honor Of Dr. Behney 

Dinner And Addresses Feature In In- 
teresting Seminar. 



Last week the Life Work Recruits 
tendered a banquet in honor of Dr. and 
• Mrs. J. Bruce Behney of Bonebrake 
theological seminary who were on the 
campus representing the interests of the 
seminary. Dr. Behney, who is the head 
of the department of Church history, 
spoke in the College church Sunday, and 
spent the major portion of Monday in- 
terviewing students. 

After the dinner, Miller Schmuck act- 
ed as toastmaster and introduced the 
speakers of the evening. He called on 
Dr. Richie and Dr. Butterwick, alumni 
of the seminary, who spoke of the work 
of the seminary and its influence as a 
denominational center. Next he called 
on Harold Beamesderfer to speak for 
the organization. Calvin Reber, the next 
speaker, introduced Dr. Behney. In his 
address Dr. Behney spoke of the work 
of Lebanon Valley, his Alma Mater, and 
of the relation of L. V. C. to the semi- 
nary. President Lynch followed with an 
interesting address commending Bone- 
brake as a theological school and Dr. 
Behney as a warm friend and adviser of 
young people. 



Notes on Books 



There are many pieces of literature 
which, when read, soon sink into the 
mysterious depths of an individual's 
mind, and then there are others whose 
impressions are more magical, more awe- 
inspiring than the throb of a poet's 
dream. 

Here, in our library, we have them 
both, and many that can be classified 
still differently. The fact remains, how- 
ever, that in each there is a precious 
gem for all who really seek it. 

"Youth Uncharted" by Stephen Law- 
ford: At seventeen, Stephen Lawford, 
a thin, wiry, undersized, bespectacled 
schoolboy, insisted on "joinin' up" as 
British recruit. That was August, 1914. 
The examining doctor refused him; he 
argued and implored, and finally per- 
suaded the doctor, who had just won the 
local tennis tournament, to pass him ix 
he could beat him in a tennis match. The 
boy fought desperately, won, was sent 
into training on Salisbury Plain, then to 
India, and, after nearly two years there 
and in Arabia, was invalided home with 
his right hand hopelessly crippled. 

This is only the introduction to the 
story. To say that it is ,a story of as- 
tonishing adventures is not nearly suffi- 
cient. After the war he got a job which 
took him all over South Russia where 
experiences were thrilling and fantastic. 
As the Bolsheviks advanced, Lawford 
was always in the thick of things. Pie 
never balked at any proposition, though 
failure might mean certain death — in a 
Red prison, in the Black Sea, or at the 
hands of a firing squad. Amid these 
scenes he met the Russian girl whom 
he later married. For several years, he 
worked for the British government and 
the League of Nations in assisting le- 
fugees. Finding food, clothing, and 
homes for refugees of half a dozen coun- 
tries was a man-size job; 30,000 passed 
from Russia alone through his office. 

Finally, Lawford tells how he went 
to seek places for refugee colonies in 
South America. On a trip of investiga- 
tion through wilds of Bolivia he narrow- 
ly escaped shipwreck and experienced 
a lively meeting with a jaguar. The 
whole story, though true, has the charm 
and excitement of the incredible. The 
author's delightful faculty for seeing 
the funny side of even the most desper- 
ate situations adds much to the enjoy- 
ment of his spirited narrative. 



Of all the interesting books recently 
published, those that are especially out- 
standing are three which the library 
has just acquired. In order to keep up 
with the times, avail yourselves of this 
opportunity to read the best. 

"Silas Crockett," by Mary Ellen 
Chase: The author tells in this new 
novel the story of a New England fam- 
ily through four generations: of hand- 
some young Captain Silas Crockett of 
the clipper "Southern Seas," prospering 
in the Canton trade in 1830; his son, Ni- 
cholas, who had a less glorious but a 
happy life as first officer of the schooner 
"Mildred May," rounding the Horn to 
San Francisco; his grandson, Reuben, 
who perforce contented himself with the 
captaincy of a passenger steamer serv- 
ing the Maine coast towns; and finally 
his great-grandson, Silas, who longed to 
study medicine, but as times were hard 
in 1930, went to work instead in the 
great herring factory which was now the 
chief industry of that coast. 

Miss Chase draws a delightful picture 
of Saturday Cave, the home of the 
Crocketts, in the prosperous days when 
it built ships for every ocean and sup- 
plied the men and boys who sailed them, 
and though she shows the sadness of th'i 
changes wrought by time, she brings out 
strikingly the persistence of the people. 
She paints in full color both the Crock- 
ett men and the women they married — 
Abigail in her wisdom and humor, mel- 
lowed by age; Solace who feared the sea 
but adoring Silas, sailed with him on 
many a rough voyage; Deborah, for love 
of whom Nicholas went to his death on 
the Banks; Huldah, the philosopher, 
whose life with Reuben was one of 
"measureless content" ; Ann, the modern 
girl who married the later Silas, and 
who fully satisfied the Crocketts' taste 
for "spice in women." 

"Silas Crockett" is not only the chron- 
icle of a family through the chances and 
changes of a New Eng'and's maritime 
history, a story of adve iture and hero- 
ism on deep water and all the varied 
incidents of ilfe in a seacoast town; it is 
an absorbing study of character, who e 
rich human understanding is distin- 
guished by a refreshing ic'eali m. 

# * * * 

"Sawdust Caesar," by George Seldes: 
Here is the complete, true story of Mus- 
salini and Fascism, told for the first 
time in English. It appears just at the 
moment when the world's attention is 
riveted on the man and !he politics of 
his invention. If the story's publication 
were delayed much longer, it might have 
been too late, for Mussolini's records 
have ways of their own of disappearing. 
Archives and libraries in Italy have been 
stripped, and it is now a crime punish- 
able by exile to republish certain of his 
writings. 

"Sawdust Caesar"' is completely docu- 
mented. Mussolini as a boy was a lusty 
brawler, adept with a knife. In his 
Swiss exile he was arrested for violence 
and finally for forgery. Back home he 
led strikes and defended the assassina- 
tions of kings. In 1914 there occurred 
his dramatic shift from socialism to mil- 
itarism. There is proof that six years 
later he, in the Bolshevik uprising, had 
questionable dealings with both the com- 
munist and capitalist camps. The book 
readies a climax with the march on Rome 
and the bloody story of the plot against 
Matteotti. From then on Fascism ruled 
with the sword until it smashed oppo- 
sition in 1926 and paved the way to ful- 
fillment of Mussolini's dream of a new 
economic state and colonial empire. 

* * * « 

■'Illgrian Spring/' by Ann Bridge: 
Ann Bridge made her debut as a novel- 
ist by the winning of the Atlantic Nov- 
el Contest of 1932. As a diplomatist's 
wife, Ann Bridge has traveled to the 
ends of the earth. This novel has for its 
setting the little-known Dalmatian coast. 
The situation chosen for the story is 



Women Debaters Meet 

Kutztown S. T. College 



(Continued From Page i) 



Rev. W. A. Wilt, pastor of the college 
church, Miss Jane Miller of the history 
department of the Hummclstown High 
School, and Prof. Hollinger of the 
English department of the Annville High 
School. 

At the negative team's contest at 
Kutztown, Professor Heeps, head of the 
teachers college library, acted as critic 
and privately interviewed both teams af- 
ter the debate. "The question being sole- 
ly Constitutional especially for the nega- 
tive side," he said, "I highly commend 
both teams for the unusual knowledge 
of the subject." 

Razelle Levitz and Emma Mary Smys- 
er compose the negative team. Howard 
Nye, Grace Naugle, the assistant man- 
ager of the team, and Esther Flom, al- 
ternate, accompanied them. 

The next contest for the teams will be 
Feb. 26 when they will meet Ursinus in 
a dual on the Supreme Court question. 
The orthodox style will be used. 



this: What is an attractive woman to 
do when she finds herself so dominated 
by her husband and her children that 
she has lost the interest of the former 
and her understanding of the latter? 

Lady Kilmichael had won an interna- 
tional reputation with her paintings. But 
at home the cool mind of that distin- 
guished economist, her husband, and the 
ragging of the twins who are at Cam- 
bridge, and her debutante daughter, Lin- 
net, reduced her to a state of unhappy 
inferiority. With her quiet decision she 
packed up her palette and paints and 
disappeared in the general direction of 
the Greek islands. 

Lady Kilmichael was thirty-eight, slim 
and attractive. On shipboard it was not 
unnatural that she should acquire two 
attentive companions, Nicky, a young 
Englishman of twenty-two, at odds with 
the world, and Dr. Halther, a German 
philosopher. The three find themselves 
together again on the Adriatic coast, 
which Lady Kilmichael finds an artist's 
paradise. But while she paints, other 
things are happening to her. Young 
Nicky is making clear the problems and 
aspirations of his generation, and he 
and the German doctor are providing 
her with a zest for life and a self-con- 
fidence which she badly needs. 

In Grace Kilmichael the author has 
drawn a woman whose charm and whose 
trouble one responds to instinctively. 
Her honesty, her shyness, her unclever 
integrity, give this story a warmth and 
delight not easily matched in modern 
fiction.

^orld Movements 
Furnish Material 
For Recent Books 

DISCUSSED BY READERS 



Ethiopia 



Russia, And Mussolini 



Discussed By Reader's Club. 

A Readers' Club meeting was held on 
Monday, Mar. 2, at the home of Dr. 
i'allace. Harold Phillips had charge of 
the evening's program. The theme of 
the meeting was books which reflect mod- 
ern movements. 

The Ethiopian problem was first con- 
sidered. Mr. Phillips read a paper, writ- 
ten by Mr. William Clark, on the art and 
literature of the Ethiopians. 

The book / Write as I Please by Wal- 
ter Duranty was reviewed by Theodore 
Loose. This book reveals Russia of the 
post-war period with its 'soviet govern- 
ment and communism. _ 

Calvin Reber was to review Return to 
Philosophy by C. E. M. Joad. Because 
he was speaking in a debate on the same 
evening, Mr. Phillips read his paper on 
the book. An interesting quotation from 
the book is this: "Dancing is stilted 
perambulation, more or less hindered by 
a member of the opposite sex." The re- 
viewer read an interesting portion which 
dealt with the philosophy of smoking. 

The Shape of Things to Come was re- 
viewed by Maxine Early. This book re- 
veals many social, economic, and political 
trends in Mr. H. G. Wells' prophecy for 
the future. Wells reveals many interest- 
ing things that he is certain will hap- 
pen. For instance, the next war will 
break out on Jan. 4, 1940, and for a very 
peculiar reason. 

The last book reported on was Saw- 
dust Caesar by George Seldes. Kenneth 
Eastland handled this book. Sawdust 
Caesar is Mussolini, who is portrayed as 
a dominant, all-powerful bully, chief 
among his characteristics being his faith 
111 himself and his glorious destiny.

Life Work Recruits 

Hear Miss Wood Speak 

Ideal Of Christ's Life Is Theme Of 
Talk. 



The Life Work Recruits were privi- 
leged to hear an address by Miss Wood 
last Thursday evening on the subject of 
the Townsend Bill. Miss Wood related 
the effort of Dr. Townsend in putting 
across an idea to the work of the re- 
cruits. "If one man can present an idea 
that will stir four million people, what 
an opportunity the young people have in 
presenting — not an idea — but an ideal, 
not to four million people, but to the 
world — the ideal of the Christ life," she 
said. 

Willard Fetter, an alumnus of L. V. 
now having a pastorate in Petersburg, 
West Virginia, was present and conduct- 
ed devotions. Miss Irene Ranck pre- 
sided at the piano. In the brief business 
session which followed, Mrs. Wilt was 
selected to coach the play to be given by 
the L. W. R. in the near future. 



Kalo Prepared To 
Present Minstrel 



Directors And Participants 
Highly Enthusiastic. 

Kalo minstrels are here again. The 
blackfaced boys will "strut their stuff" 
to-morrow night at eight in Engle Hall. 
All signs point to a most successful per- 
formance for the evening's entertain- 
ment. The enthusiasm of those partici- 
pating has been intensified by a realiza- 
tion of the fine program that they have 
to present and so they are strenuously 
working to make their presentation 
worthy of the script. 

Richard Smith and Stuart Goodman 
are acting as directors while the music 
is being directed by Tony Jagnesak who 
will lead the orchestra. Some of the hits 
of the program are: the special ar- 
rangement for organ and orchestra of 
"Rose Marie", as arranged by the Her- 
shey Theatre organist, played by Kalo 
Orchestra with Robert Smith at the or- 
gan ; the "Fiddlers Three" with modern 
music in a modern manner, real "swing 
tunes" ; special numbers by the chorus ; 
censored jokes by the end-men; and the 
grand finale arranged by Beulah Duffey. 

Seats are selling at 25 cents for your 
pick of the house and veterans who saw 
former Kalo Minstrel shows say that 
this will surpass the others for good 
music, good jokes, and good fun. 



LYNCHES ENTERTAIN

President and Mrs. Lynch were at 
home to the Junior Class on Thursday 
iifternoon, Feb. 26. 

The guests were entertained by games, 
BUCh as Monopoly, Anagrams, and Check- 
ers. Old "Quitties" were a source of 
amusement to many. 

After a short time Mrs. Green an- 
nounced the program, which consisted 
of a violin trio composed of John Zettle-

Valley Debaters 
Meet Lincoln U. 
On Court Question 

NO - DECISION CONTESTS 



Oregon Plan Proves Dangerous For 
Both Teams. 



The men's debating team came to 
rhetorical swords with the forensic taler.t 
of Lincoln University in Philo Hall on 
the evening of Mar. 2 in a no-decision 
debate on the subject of whether or not 
the Supreme court should continue to be 
unreviewable. 

Under the chairmanship of Prof. Gin- 
grich who is a bit inclined to see the 
human side of things the discussion de- 
veloped some unusual aspects, especially 
during the cross-questioning, one of the 
more dangerous Requirements of the 
Oregon plan of debate under which the 
affair was held. 

Campus opinion is somewhat divided 
concerning who appeared to bring su- 
perior strategy to bear on the opposition. 
Many were impressed by the mass of ob- 
jective material and logic with which the 
Lincoln debaters conducted their speeches 
for the negative, i. e., in favor of the 
Supreme Court. They especially distin- 
guished themselves h y the criminal court 
efficiency with which they stymied the 
vociferous William. Clark, a new addi- 
tion to the home affirmative, in the cross- 
question business. On the other hand, 
by dint of clever strategy, Charles Kin- 
ney, the veteran war-horse for the local 
affirmative, succeeded in putting the 
visitors rather ill at ease with his subtle 
interrogations. 

There was also a debate at Lincoln, 
the home negative, of course, traveling. 
Calvin Reber and Boyd Shaffer, who 
have been upholding the Supreme Court 
"for our side" thus far with a decent 
showing of victories, displayed their 
locutory talents with the usual com- 
petence, although it is reported that the 
Lincolnites presented some tall opposi- 
tion. Mr. Reber, a gentleman of scholarly 
bent, declares that the doings were "in- 
tellectually stimulating." 



PLAN "PLAY DAY" 

FOR L. V. CAMPUS 



Something new along the line of physi- 
cal education will be carried out April 
25 on our campus. 

Miss Henderson has reported that she 
is making plans for a Play Day to be 
held on that date in which all high 
schools in this area will be invited to 
participate. 

More details will be reported later as 
Miss Henderson's plans mature. 



Dr. Shenk Entertains 

H-burg Eclectic Club 

Body Hears Judge Read Paper On 
Supreme Court. 



Dr. H. H. Shenk entertained the Eclec- 
tic Club of Harrisburg at a dinner held 
in the Harrisburg Civic Club on Feb. 24, 
at which Judge Hargest, of the Dauphin 
County courts, read a paper on the sub- 
ject of the Supreme Court. 

Since the Eclectic Club is a rather ex- 
clusive body which does not seek publi- 
city, its activities are not generally known 
to the public. It is, however, composed 
of distinguished men from practically all 
the professions who meet several times 
a year to discuss problems of interest to 
such an intellectual organization. Dr. 
Shenk declares that of all the clubs of 
which he has been a member, "these are 
the finest men" he has known. 

Their numbers include such persons as 
Mr. Wallower, a venerable gentleman 
now an octogenarian who founded the 
Harrisburg Street Railways, Dr. Ashley, 
the state geologist, Dr. Ruhl, ex-super- 
intendent of public instruction, and 
others whose honors are numerous. The 
total membership is fifteen, and of these, 
eight are listed in Who's Who in Am- 
erica. 

The club was organized chiefly through 
the efforts of Dr. Shenk and another 
charter member several years ago for 
the purpose of mutual intellectual stimu- 
lation and the clarification of important 
problems. From the beginning the or- 
ganization has been without dues and all 
the usual encumbrances of club life. At 
each meeting one of the members reads 
a paper suitable to the time and occasion 
and each member in his turn pays for 
the dinners which are held several times 
a year. 

Dr. Shenk is also a charter member of 
the Torch Club, a body in the organiza- 
tion of which he played a large part, 
and which exists for purposes similar to 
those of the Eclectic Club. Its member- 
ship, however, numbers fifty rather than 
fifteen. 

Judge Hargest's remarks are not avail- 
able for publication. 



DELPHIAN TEA 



Delta Lambda Sigma will entertain 
their mothers at a tea in their hall 
Saturday afternoon during Mother's 
week-end. Sarah Lupton and Rose 
Tschopp will attend to the refresh- 
ments and Charlotte Stabley will ar- 
range the musical program. The rest 
of the society will get the hall into an 
afternoon tea atmosphere. Mrs. C. R. 
( ringrich will pour. 



May Day Plans Are 
Well Under Way 

Theme Of Annual Spring 
Epic To Be International. 

Plans for this year's May Day cele- 
bration are well under way according to 
Miss Henderson who has lately revealed 
her anticipated contribution to the annual 
event. 

Miss Henderson states that she will 
work out her program using one theme, 
an international idea. Various coun- 
tries will be represented by those par- 
ticipating. Japan, Sweden, Ireland, Spain, 
Russia and the United States are the 
countries included. The music, dancing, 
and costuming will be of the nature of 
these countries. 

'I he physical education classes along 
with the Conservatory students will take 
a very active part. Both the girls' and 
ii iys' hands will furnish the music. Ac- 
cording to Miss Henderson the Glee 
Club is also expected to take part in the 
May day ceremonies. 

The program promises to be a good 
one, cleverly presented and quite ap- 
propriate for the celebration. 



Inkspots Discuss 
Technical Detail 
At Struble Home 



CRITICS STUDY STYLE. 



Poetry, Character Studies, Short 
Stories, Letters Receive Attention. 



At the Green Blotter club meeting on 
Thursday evening last eight members re- 
sponded to the roll call of fantastic noms 
dt' plume. 

The minutes were read after which the 
secretary discovered that the date had 
been omitted from them. Sylva Harcle- 
rode suggested referring to her diary, 
but she did not offer to submit that in- 
teresting literary work for criticism by 
the other Inkspots. 

William Clark was officially appointed 
critic for the evening by Headscop 
Straub. A nameless poem number one 
was read by Alice Richie and caused a 
discussion whether lovers go walking 
under pines in the snow or not. All 
seemed reluctant to volunteer informa- 
tion, probably owing to a fear of being 
identified personally with the knowledge 
exhibited. 

Louise Gillan read two poems, her ini- 
tial contributions to Green Blotter lore. 
Several other members had written 
poetry, among them being Louis Straub 
who read a few humorous verses. In 
one of these products of Louis' gift for 
poetry a character got a toe-hold upon 
another's ear. 

Three prose works were submitted : 
The Magic of a Smile resulted in con- 
versation regarding the art of creating 
in the reader a feeling of reality for 
the writer's characters. In an article 
about life in a country newspaper plant, 
a description of the sound of tobacco 
juice hitting a cuspidor — phwong — oc- 
casioned discussion of different nationali- 
ties' methods and merits of chewing the 
weed. Lead Water, a character study, 
told the story of a murder in a hospital. 

When the club was digressing on the 
subject of letters, one said he received an 
epistle fraught with feeling. The gist of 
it, he said, was, "You spend too much 
money." The meeting ended with the 
serving of Mrs. Struble's delicious re- 
freshments and talk— big and small- 
sailed back and forth across the coffee 
cups. , 1 1 



POOL TOURNAMENT 

The local pool sharks will be given 
an opportunity to demonstrate their 
skill in the near future. The Y. M. 
C. A. cabinet has decided to sponsor 
a pool tournament in the recreation 
room of the "Y," beginning about 
xVIar. 5. 

The last time such an affair was 
held here William Earnest proved 
beyond all question that he was the 
champion in these parts, but quite a 
number of pool enthusiasts here- 
abouts have declared themselves to 
he out after Bill's scalp this year. 

Victor Fridinger has been appoint- 
ed manager-in-chief of the contest, 
and the schedule of players will be 
posted by him as soon as all arrange, 
ments have been made. All male L. 
V. ('. students are eligible for parti- 
cipation in this event.

Student Government 

Ihose who find fault with the way in which student government is conducted 
on the campus are apt to forget thai any representative government is based on 
the principle of the individual citizens responsibility and cooperation in seeing 
that the enacted laws are respected and eniorced. 'this is especially true m our 
own campus government. Our siuuer.t government bodies have as their duties the 
eniorcement of the laws and rules anu uie trial of ottences against tnem along witn 
the intiictions oi penalties, riowever, the system does not provide ior any police- 
men on beats, nor does it provide a trained detective torce. it is expected that the 
cooperation of the student body as a whole will render these things unnecessary. 

O-npers are often heard to say, wny doesn't the W. S. G. A. do sometning 
about this or that? Why doesn't the buiate do something about conditions in the 
dorm or day students' room t Most of these gripers are persons who witness 
ottences against rules time and again, oifences that ottend them personally or make 
them indignant. But instead of placing a charge against the ottendmg person with 
the proper governing body, either because of timidity or ignorance, the oitendeu 
person taKes out his ire by runnmg clown student government as an institution, tt 
is high time that the campus individual does his part in emareing decent anu 
gentlemanly conduct and thus makes it possible for the Senate and tne \\ . S. G. A. 
to do theirs. 



LETTERS TO 

THE EDITORS 



Dear Reporter: 

1 got a copy of La Vie Collegienne 
containing your interview. It occurred 
very seldom, during my long journalis- 
tic career, which 1 entered in 1918, that 
I found it necessary and worthwhile to 
correct reports about my lectures and 
talks. 1 do it in this letter, feeling the 
responsibility which is given to us Ger- 
man journalists by our press system. 
You and I, we talked about what free- 
dom of the press really means. In your 
report, you failed to tell that I men- 
tioned my suspicions toward a so-called 
freedom which in reality allows every 
practical control of the press by eco- 
nomic interests or politics. I just hope, 
knowing the wonderful spirit which rules 
at Lebanon Valley College, that you are 
not obliged by any powers to bring news 
and reports in a biased manner, as I 
certainly know many newspaper nun 
have to do. The less I can understand 
why you made so terrible mistakes and 
omitted or added essential parts of our 
friendly talk, which I was glad to have, 
and which I always will grant to young 
people as I though am not encouraged 



by my really very sad experience with 
you. 

Your entire report is written in a spir- 
it of lixed prejudice, or it coud not con- 
tain things so different from what I stat- 
ed in my public talk. I am quite sure 
nobody will believe in that. 

You asked me whether the German 
people have a feeling of revenge against 
the French, and whether their relations 
to France have improved or not. 1 men- 
tioned the fact that if immediately after 
the World War German soldiers would 
have been willing to light France again, 
as I happened to hear them saying, now 
a days there is no such feeling. I em- 
phasized the latter fact strictly enough 
to make it clear. It does not hurt my 
responsibility as a German Newspaper 
Woman and a loyal citizen of my coun- 
try to have these things reported in such 
a way, but it worries me more than I can 
express from the point of view of a per- 
son who, as I always did, believes in 
good international relations and a fail- 
spirit between the different nations and 
their peoples. I never was in France, 
but like it as I like foreign cultures with- 
out giving up my German culture, and I 
just hate such silly procedures as yours. 
What did you mean by your question? 

The thing about the freedom of the 
press is misrepresented too, but it would 



take too much time to repeat what I al- 
ready touched. I plainly express that I 
personally do not care for a pretended 
freedom, but know that freedom does 
not mean license, but selfdiscipline and 
self control. 

Who told you about folk-dancing and 
singing being our form of dancing as a 
usual entertainment? When Germany 
refuses to have played what they call 
Jazzmusic, originating from foreign cul- 
tures and primitive peoples, this may be 
something that seems strange to you, 
though 1 heard many young people in 
this country say that they did not like 
this so-called niggermusic either. But 
what you apparently do not know, but 
could know and should know, is, that 
German music is broad enough and beau- 
tiful enough to provide the finest enter- 
tainment, even when it does not go back 
to folksongs, which we as Wandervoegel 
appreciated. Don't you know about the 
Strauss waltzs? Did I describe the Ger- 
man bands the way you reported? I had 
no reason for that. And professional 
responsibility — we at least consider 
press-writing as a profession — must pre- 
vent you from reporting your view as if 
it was mine. Report your own why not. 
But make it clear as what you think, and 
would stand up for. 

Yours truly, 
Mahgarete Kaiser IIahniscii. 



ALUMNI NOTES 



Editor's Note — This letter came as a 
distinct surprise to us. May we refer the 
reader to the account of the interview 
with Mrs. Kaiser in our Feb. 13 issue. 
We are still under the delusion that it is 
accurate in all details.

Dear Editor: 

I was sorry to read of the demise of 
the columns "Rudy and Judy/' I have 
been reading them with enjoyment since 
their beginnings. 

Were they really written by freshmen, 
or were they by staff columnists? 

They were the most original gossip 
column I have ever read. I tried in vain 
to get something in the same order in our 
columns. How do you do it? 

I hope this bouquet is not too late for 
their funeral services. 

Sincerely, 

Gwen Schlegel, Editor of The Susque- 
hanna. 



Mason I^ong, M.A., an alumnus of 
Lebanon V alley and associate professor 
of Fnglish Literature at Pennsylvania 
Stale College, has written a new gram- 
mar of the English language which has 
been recently published under the title 
of the New Uolleye Graiwmar. 

Mr. Long, son of D. E. Long, a local 
pastor, takes a conservative view of 
many aspects of modern grammar, espe- 
cially with regard to such matters as 
punctuation and syntax. His book covers 
the held in a thorough and comprehen- 
sive manner and contains much essential 
information that it is difficult to find 
elsewhere. 

Although the volume is scholarly and 
of a conservative tone, this statement 
should not be taken to mean that it suf- 
fers from dogmatic reactionaryism, as 
many contemporary works of a similar 
nature do from a rabidly radical view- 
point. As the author says in the lirst 
chapter, "Grammar . . . passes on the 
best language it can . . . and does not 
dictate what usage should or should not 
be. The work of the grammarian is rath- 
er to tabulate the laws that underlie the 
best contemporary usage and then pre- 
sent the lindings to those who are eager 
to learn the language."

Notes on Boole 



"The Last Puritan," by George San- 
ta} ana: World renowned for almost for- 
ty years as a philosopher, essayist, and 
poet, George Santayana now crowns his 
literary achievements with a work of fic- 
tion which is destined to stand among 
the greatest of all American novels and 
to live as an unequalled picture of our 
civilization from the '90's to the close of 
the Great War. 

It is American life, especially life in 
New England, as seen through the eyes 
of a young man who grew up in those 
swiftly changing years that brought an 
epoch to its close. The protagonist is 
Oliver Arden, in whom "Puritanism 
worked itself out to its logical end," who 
"convinced himself on Puritan ground 
that it was wrong to be a Puritan, and 
remained a Puritan notwithstanding." 
Oliver's background and character sym- 
bolize a significant aspect of American 
life, and his experiences in rural New 
England, the Harvard of Santayanas 
day, Oxford, Eton, London and Paris 
epitomize the cultural and social life of a 
generation. Although cast in the form of 
fiction, Alden's life is interwoven with 
Santayana's autobiographical reminis- 
cences, and composes a spiritual land- 
scape of the Puritan New England scene. 
It is an absorbing story, emotional and 
dramatic, pervaded with wit and humor 
and containing a gallery of beautifully 
drawn, vital and convincing characters.

Second League Victory 

Muhlenberg Falls Before Snappy At- 
tack In Lebanon Game. 



Lebanon Valley's courtsters crashed 
,o-h with their second league win of 
£ aS t-waning cage season last batur- 
l ' 16 night when they defeated Muhlen- 
Mules, 40 to 36, on the Lebanon 

berg s 

uj h School floor. The Blue and White 
ctory lit ted them out of the cellar and 
\ ce( j the defeated quintet into the last 
sition in the Eastern Pennsylvania Col- 
gate League, although a defeat at the 
band* of Albright in the final game of 
t j, e season on Saturday will move the 
y a jleyites into a deadlock for trailer's 
hon ors for this season. 

Paul Billett, the league's leading scorer, 
l e d the Blue and White outfit in its vic- 
tory charge against the Mules with seven 
win-counters and a half dozen charity 
tosses to total twenty points. The L. V. 
q forward and his brother, Ralph, put 
on a fast-passing, accurate-shooting ex- 
hibition that had the Muhlenberg defense 
baffled. The younger of the Billett duo 
snared five field goals to contribute 
heavily to the Valley point total. 

Muhlenberg has already completed its 
league schedule and has won two of 
twelve games played. To date, L. V. C. 
has won two out of eleven in league com- 
petition and the basketeers have a chance 
to boost themselves out of last place 
permanently by defeating the traditional 
rivals, Albright. The Lions, incidentally, 
have been playing heads-up basketball 
recently. They have handed F. & M. the 
only defeat the Diplomats have suffered 
this season and now rest in third posi- 
tion in the league standings with a record 
of six wins and four losses. 

Grosman, speedy Muhlenberg guard, 
was high scorer for the losing crew in 
Saturday's game with a half-dozen field 
goals for twelve points. 

The game on the whole was one of the 
roughest games of the season and was 
without doubt the most amusing game 
of the year. For the most part, the play 
proceeded unimpeded by interference 
irom the referee, Johnny Borger, who 
gave a rather poor exhibition of whistle- 
tooting and seemed to be little more than 
an interested on-looker during much of 
the proceedings. 

Lebanon Valley held its own from the 
opening whistle and assumed a five-point 
^vantage at half-time, with the Flying 
Dutchmen's own miscues restraining them 
lr om enjoying a greater advantage. Dur- 
ln § the second half the Valleyites spotted 
'he basket and counted on one sensa- 
tlo nal field try after another to gallop 
away f rom their opponents without any 
difficulty. The Muhlenbergers played 
s °PPy basketball from beginning to end 
a "d never capitalized fully on the many 
oring opportunities which presented 
.^selves, although a measure of their 
^erricien cy could be charged up in favor 
J io e Lebanon Valley guards, who func- 
d smoothly in breaking up the 



down-court plays. 



Th

Seemed to be their loose play in

The inspired play of the Billetts was 
the real feature of the game, as the two 
Harrisburgers were all over the floor in- 
tercepting passes and breaking up oppos- 
ing plays. Their passing in offensive 
court was speedy and accurate, and they 
counted on a better percentage of their 
shots than in any other game this season. 

A side-issue of the real contest was 
,the personal battle between Clarence 
Aungst, Valley center, and his pivot 
opponent, Thomas. This pair of foes 
were pushing, elbowing, tripping, knee- 
ing, and what-not throughout the game, 
a'ul they actually concentrated strictly on 
their boxing pursuits for a pair of min- 
utes in the middle of the second half 
while Referee Borger stuck to his ap- 
parent duty of the evening, that of 
looking the other way. No official score 
of the brief bout was registered, so that 
any appraisal of the comparative ad- 
vantage of either of the sluggers re- 
mains for the individual spectator. How- 
ever, the official score renders a verdict 
in favor of the Blue and White center, 
basketballistically speaking, as Aungst 
registered ten points while holding his 
chubby foe to a mere four. 

In another walk-away preliminary con- 
test, Lebanon Valley's Frosh registered 
their tenth consecutive win of the season, 
with a copyrighted 47-22 verdict over 
the Hershey Industrial School passers. 
The Freshmen came mighty close to their 
customary half-century tally of points, 
while the Industrial outfit had no look- 
in on the ball game from start to finish. 

The 47-point total was distributed 
evenly among the Frosh passers, with 
Hance and Kress leading the way with 
five field goals apiece. Frey and Rozman 
counted eight points apiece, Brown regis- 
tered seven counters, and Dempsey four. 
McCurdy was the losers' best bet, with 
seven points to his credit. The Hershey 
passers treated the basketball like a hot 
potato throughout the game and showed 
a ready disposition to attempt stabs at 
the basket, without regard for working 
a player into scoring position, one-handed 
and long pokes being in order for the 
ultimate losers.

theme of the evening's discussion. Pro- 
fessor Gingrich was the guest speaker 
of the club. He presented a strong de- 
fense of the Supreme Court. The ques- 
tion was then held open for discussion, 
and a lively, informal debate between 
Professor Gingrich and those who took 
issue with him followed. 



Tuesday evening, Mar. 10, at 8 o'clock, 
a student recital will be held in Engle 
Hall. Those students appearing will be

Treo, cello; John Zettlemoyer, first 
violin ; George Yokum, second violin ; 
and Eugene Saylor, viola ; at the Tues- 
day night recital in Engle Hall when the 
group presented The Mill, by Raff. The 
feeling of the audience at the time 
seemed to be that their playing on future 
recitals would be welcomed. 

Oleta Dietrich rendered Sarabande el 
Pastorale, by Senallie-Brown, and Dirge 
of the North, by Balogh-Kreisler, on her 
violin.

Blithering Balderdash 

By Xenophox, the Stooge 



"We hear that our traitorous compatri- 
ot, one Sennacherib the Sardine, has been 
circulating information about us of a 
sort damaging to character and reputa- 
tion during our absence. One would have 
thought we were in the jug like any com- 
mon bail-beaters, whereas, for matter of 
fact, such was not the case at all. We 
merely dropped in to spend the week- 
end with a friend. And, furthermore, we 
did not crawl through a back window at 
the Delphian dance— we merely climbed 
the rainspout and effected entry through 
a fire escape door. The fire-escape was 
hanging in media aere to make matters 
more interesting and required a much 
finer technique than back-windows. Al- 
most any burglar worthy the profession 
can effect illegal entry that way, but no 
one without his M.M. (Master of Misap- 
propriation) would dare climb a rain- 
spout. He'd be thrown out of the Union.

From Ken Sheaffer, an aimiable alum- 
nus of this here academic grove, comes 
the following slightly expurgated compli- 
ment; "1 got the La Vie of Feb. 20th, 
and am disgusted with that new column 
which was on the last page. The first 
time it appeared 1 held a little hope, but 
since seeing the last one, 1 gave up. . . . 
If they want filler why not get news 
from other school papers or student 
slants on subjects of national interest? 
.Most anything would be interesting com- 
pared to that. But 1 know how much 
trouble it is to get anything worthwhile 
out of that bunch of editorially egotistic 
nluicompoops . . . the ones who come in 
the category just mentioned certainly 
gum up the works." 

\» e were quite pleased, Mr. Sheaffer, 
to receive your view on the matter, it 
uoes all of us presumably some good to 
see ourselves as otheis see us. And to 
those who don't know, Mr. Sheaffer is 
especially wed qualified to analyze our 
situation, especially with regard to ego- 
tism, ne regards ic as one of die car- 
dinal sins — worth exconmiumcation prou- 
ably, and therefore is following a very 
uiuuest occupation at present, just out 
of college, did he grab off a big job like 
some oi those other fellows? Aot at aL. 
tie's helping to maKe ice machines down 
at YorK tor, we are iniormed, $1.5.00 the

it also appears that some one has been 
deceiving you most deplorably, Mr. 
Sheaffer, on a few matters, too. They've 
even gone ami said we don't give the 
public a chance to exp.e^s itself. Except 
lor public-spirited men liite you, Mr. 
Slieatter, no o.ie warns to give his "slant

of original material. It is hoped that 
you'll forgive us.

Passing the door behind which dwells 
Mr. Straub's room-mate about mid- 
night once last week, we were amazed to

They used to fight to kiss my hand;

the instigators of the class, and have 
gained the assistance of some of the girls

taken advantage of this opportunity. 

CLIO-PHILO PLAY 

As yet the Clio-Philo play has not been 
decided on definitely. The members of 
the committee, Martha Faust, Louise 
Shearer, William Earnest and Woodrow 
nimmelwright, headed by the chairman 
Kenneth Hastiand, and at times the An-

considering and reading over several 
plays. The ones most eligible are "Alli-

The story we've been trying to think 
of for the past ten minutes while manu- 
facturing the above hot-air substitute is 
the one about Miss Wood, who doesn't 
want to go to heaven because she'd have 
to paint the angels' throats. On the oth- 
er hand, some thoughtful theolog thrust 
back, you'd probably have to stay up all 
night putting ice-packs on the devils' 
heads ! 

Prof. Carmean tells one about the 
baseball umpire, inured by long years of 
following his profession to good hot op- 
position from the stands. When he went 
to Hell, they gave him the warmest room

for another blanket.

I should like to take for the text of 
this week's sermon the subject — Good 
Taste Realizing the effrontery of at- 
tempting to discuss this subjeel at large, 
I shall confine myself to singing the 
praises of good taste as it colors our 
small campus. 

Among the evidences of good taste 
which run so rampant among us, I hum- 
bly submit the following: 

Dining-hall conduct. 

Athlete-worship. 

Women's courtesy. 

Tieless collars. 

Men's society initiations. 

Men's day-student room. 

To take the first subject, that of din- 
ing-hall conduct, I want to commend at 
the outset the admirable technique dis- 
played by our local artists in the conver- 
sion of ordinary table-knives to Roman 
catapults for the purpose of flinging the 
choicest green peas hither and yon; to 
laud them upon the exquisite trajectories 
which they employ in depositing the 
aforesaid green pellets upon a neighbor- 
ing mashed potato citadel. The gusto 
with which our table warriors besmear 
the clean linen with bloody clots of cat- 
sup would be worthy of such a renowned 
gore-slinger as the late John Dillinger. 

The second group I wish to extend my 
sincerest admiration to are the athlete- 
worshippers. These are a band of social 
half-wits whose origin is directly trace- 
able to the prep school. They thrive in 
the reflected glow of heroic deeds per- 
formed by men of broad shoulders, nar- 
row heads and large feet by whom they 
are heartily encouraged and whose every 
word is snatched upon by these idolizers 
as divine manna. 

The most shining example of good taste 
is to be observed at approximately 4:30 
P. M. in front of South Hall. At this 
hour four or five charming coeds rush 
merrily out of the Hall, and take a sta-

Hon, on the opposite side of the street, 
at about one hundred feet west of a 
group of men who obviously intend to 
catch a ride to Lebanon. The courtesy 
with which these ladies hail a passing 
motor-car is astonishing, and the broad 
smiles which they mast upon the long- 
waiting males as they whirl merrily past 
are an indescribable delight. 

Tieless collars are the mode among a 
certain elite sect who seek to exhibit 
their manliness both by their impervious- 
ness to winter cold and by a display of 
their beautiful chests. The exquisite good 
taste of these Don J nans is not to be un- 
derrated and their courageous practice, 
if followed by us males as a body, would 
considerably enhance the beauty of our 
lives and the gentility of our habits. 

Men's society initiations offer a re- 
markable stimulus to the general culture 
of our institution. The stimulation of 
thought and impressiveness with which 
they are administered arouse in the ini- 
tiate a high respect and create a strong 
bond of social friendliness. They are in 
the best good taste, not capable of im- 
provement. 

The floor of the Men's Day-student 
Room is cluttered with paper bags and 
cigarette butts and banana peels which 
repose in most appealing inosaical pat- 
terns. The brown, white and yellow of 
these articles form a brilliant color 
scheme and stir a sensory reaction not 
to be described. 

When conditions savoring of extreme 
good taste are to be had, the student 
body will have them.

Kalo Makes Big Hit 
With Minstrel Show

Novel And Varied Program. 



for the entire company of min- 
whose performance was rated by 
the best of any of the Kalo 



Kalo Minstrels was a hit. All those 
w ho were fortunate to attend the show 
| aSt Friday night had only words of 
praise 
strels 

managers 

Minstrels presented on the campus. 

Interlocutor, end-men, chorus and or* 
chest ra combined to produce an hour and 
a half of good fun and entertainment and 
they can rest assured of a work well 
done. Those Kalos who did not have a 
part in the minstrels helped to support 
their society by boosting the ticket sale, 
and their efforts were well rewarded by 
the full house. 

The musical numbers were probably 
the biggest hits of the program although 
the jokes were hits too — some were 
strikes, but others were hits. The choco- 
late smeared boys served like veterans 
as end-men. The songs of Harvey, By- 
erly, and Shroyer and the juggling of 
Tilford were all well blended into the 
program, and the jokes of Richard Smith 
and Gongloff supplied the audience with 
many a laugh. 

The change of style made by present- 
ing the many musical numbers helped to 
make the program a novel and varied 
one. Robert Smith's number of Rose 
Mar'.e for organ and orchestra was »a 
treat in itself. The "Fiddlers Three" 
were outstanding in their offering of 
Sunset in Bermuda and played the num- 
ber with the smoothest sort of rhythm. 
] he two "Babys Grand" team of Miller 
ar >d Yokum showed the audience some- 
thing different in piano duet technique 
and everyone appreciated their arrange- 
ment of Serenade to a Wealthy Wtdon

Pres. Lynch Conducts 
Y. Faculty Conference 

The ninth annual faculty conference, 
conducted under the auspices of the State 
Y. M. C. A., was held Saturday in the 
Penn Harris Flotel, at Harrisburg. This 
conference, which is open to college pro- 
fessors and presidents of Eastern Penn- 
sylvania, is held yearly for the purpose 
of studying the problems of religious life 
on college campuses. This year Dr. 
Lynch, the president of our college, was 
the chairman. Dr. H. E. Woolever, edit- 
or of the National Methodist Press at 
Washington, D. C., was the main speaker 
for the conference. 

Dr. Stonecipher, professor of Latin at 
L. V. C conducted an ppen forum in the 
afternoon on the question, "Is the Christ 
on your campus an emotional, intellec- 
tual, mystical, or practical character?" 



Seniors, Sophs Leading 
In Inter-Class Battles 



The inter-class net festivities not hav- 
ing been completed yet, a summary of 
the season is impossible at the moment. 

As this issue goes to the composing 
room, however, it is possible to report 
that the sophs took the juniors slightly 
for a ride to the close-clipping tune of 
34-32, with Charles Kinney as the center 
of conflict on the junior side of the fence 
and Long on the soph. Also, the frosh 
took a rather decent smearing from the 
seniors who stalked off the floor with a 
47-35 score in their favor. The sages 
claim that Keiter was official hot shot for 
the upperclassmen, and Wenger king- 
fish for the wearers of the green. Wen- 
ger's activities included piling up per- 
sonally about 20 points. 

At 7:15 this evening the juniors will 
see what can be done about the senior 
situation and the sophomores, mean- 
while, are sharpening axes for the fresh- 
men. 

During the course of these contests 
enough blood has been spilled to make 
the games interesting and fascinating 
for the spectators, as well as the com- 
batants, and future clashes promise more 
thrills. 



TEA FOR SOPHS AT 
PRESIDENT'S HOME 



Mrs. Bender And Mrs. Butterwick 
Pour. 



Dr. and Mrs. Lynch were at home to 
the Sophomores last Thursday, Mar. 5, 
from 3:30 until 5:30. Mrs. Bender and 
iMrs. Butterwick, mothers of Sophomore 
girls, poured the tea and cocoa for the 
guests. Louise Gillan, Anna Mary Herr, 
and Louise Shearer, class cousins of the 
Sophomores, helped to serve. The enter- 
tainment was furnished by Charlotte Sta- 
bley who rendered two voice selections, 
and Anthony .Jagnesak who played two 
selections on the flute. The group was 
serveil delicious refreshments and enter- 
tained themselves with monopoly, ana- 
grams, checkers, croquinole, and editions 
of the "Quittie." After a delightful af- 
ternoon, the group regretfully broke up 
in time for supper. 



Mothers Weekend 

Great Success 



MANY PARENTS PRESENT 



Minstrel, Band Concert And Teas 
Feature In Their Entertainment. 



The past weekend was Mother's week- 
end at Lebanon Valley College. An at- 
tractive program of entertainment was 
arranged by the girls who kept their 
mothers busy every minute of their visit 

on the campus. 

The feature of the weekend was a con- 
cert presented in Engle Hall by the 
Girls' Band. After the concert the Del- 
phians and Clionians entertained their 
mothers at tea, held in their respective 
halls. Each hall was attractively deco- 
rated, creating a pleasant atmosphere 
for the occasion. 

On Saturday evening many mothers 
and daughters went to the basketball 
game in Lebanon, while others went to 
the theater. 

The following morning found mothers 
and daughters sitting side by side it 
worship in the college church. 

The activities for the weekend were 
concluded that aftern«)on with a tea held 
in North Hall parlor by the Y. W. C. A.

Religious Delegation 

To Go To Middletown 



The following students will appear in 
the Middletown United Brethren Church, 
Sunday evening, Mar. 15, to present an 
Education Day program. Martha Elser, 
violinist, Charlotte Stabley, mezzo so- 
prano, and Louis Straub, who will de- 
liver an address on Christian Fulucation. 

Since we have been released from win- 
ter's icy grip and can once more travel 
with comparative ease, the delegation 
solicits students' support and urges all 
who are able to worship with them. 



L. V. Band Plans 

Spring Concerts 

The forty-piece concert band is plan- 
ning a series of concert presentations 
during the coming spring months. On 
Mar. 19 they will appear at the Cham- 
bersburg United Brethren Church and 
the following day will play in the First 
Church at York, Pennsylvania. The 
next week the band will again travel to 
York County, playing at Red Lion. 
Tentative plans are being formed for 
appearances at Harrisburg, Cornwall, 
and a second engagement at York. 

Plans are also in progress for the an- 
nual spring concert on the campus. Sev- 
eral novelty numbers have been arranged 
by the directors, and students may look 
forward to a delightful program. 



Men Debaters Tie Dual 
With Albright Orators 



Two debates were held by the men's 
teams of Lebanon Valley College and Al- 
bright College. Friday morning, Mar. 6, 
the affirmative team, Charles Kinney and 
William Clark, met the Albright nega- 
tive team at the West Reading High 
School during the chapel program. The 
decision was 2-1 in favor of the Albright 
team. 

Monday night in Philo Hall the L. V. 
negative team, Boyd Shaffer and Calvin 
Reber, won by a 2-1 decision the Oregon 
debate on the Supreme Court question 
with the Albright affirmative team. The 
judges were Rev. K, O. Spessard, pastor 
of the Annville Reformed Church; Prof. 
C. A. Boyer, principal of the Henry 
Houck Jr. High School in Lebanon and 
Prof. A. H. Kelchner of the Palmyra 
High School . 



Sages In Huddle 
Over Pool Fracas 

Now that the annual pool tournament, 
a once abandoned feature of life in the 
Men's Dorm is once more a going con- 
cern, there is a surprising scarcity of 
dissension among the oracles. Whereas 
in the halcyon days of yore, now alas, 
undeniably past — forevermore — we 
couldn't resist that the numerous self- 
appointed prophets would brood o'er the 
proceedings, each from his solitary vant- 
age point for a few games, retire for a 
time to his mystic chamber, and shortly 
emerge with a prediction received on his 
private wire direct from Olympus to the 
effect that thus and so is the guaranteed 
McCoy, warranted to come through or 
your bets refunded. The only trouble 
with this system was that, since, by some 
Olympic monkey business, no two proph- 
ets seemed able to agree in the matter. 
As a result every body except the one 
who picked the winner turned out to be 
false prophets, which any one can tell 
you are likely to have a demoralizing 
effect on even a Christian institution 
when they hunt in packs. 

So, to prevent any ' widespread lapse 
into moral turpitude, the boys have said 
their magic words in a community pow- 
pow with the gods and come out in good, 
solid Republican fashion for a small 
group of candidates agreed upon in the

Albright Takes L V. 
In Gruelling Final 



FROSH STILL UNBEATEN 



Fighting Valley Squad Loses Heart- 
breaker In Last Minutes. 



Lebanon Valley's quintet lost the final 
game of the season to a fast-passing, fast- 
dribbling Albright outfit last Saturday 
night on the Lebanon High floor in a 
nip-and-tuck affair that produced the 
most spirited and most exciting action 
of the year. The final score favored the 
Lions by a half-dozen counters, 46 to 40, 
but the issue was in doubt until the last 
minutes of play. 

Both teams played hard, fast basket- 
ball in the most pleasing court exhibition 
of the season and L. V. C. was very 
much in the ball game from start to 
finish. The defeat of the Valleyites closed 
the season for the Blue and White and 
pushed them unceremoniously into a 
deadlock with Muhlenberg for last posi- 
tion in the league. 

Lebanon Valley started fast and an- 
nexed a lead of 12-2 during the open- 
ing minutes of play as a nice defense 
kept the Lions in check and the Billett 
brothers, Aungst, and Kroske garnered 
points for L. V. C. At this point Cap- 
tain "Red" Woods and his fellow-guard, 
Oslislo, went to work and put Albright 
right in the midst of the ball game with a 
rally that sliced Lebanon Valley's ad- 
vantage to two points at 14-12. The 
Blue and White managed to remain in 
front the remainder of the first half and 
left the floor at the intermission with a 
19-18 lead. 

At the start of the second half, R. 
Billett added a foul to the Valley total, 
but Slingerland deadlocked the count 
with a pair of successful free tosses. 
Paul Billett then converted a charity 
chance, but Slingerland came through 
with a field goal to send Albright into 
the lead for the first time at 22-21. R. 
Billett and Aungst made good on fouls 
to place L. V. C. back in the lead, but 
Troisi and Slingerland slipped away for 
field goals in quick succession under the 
basket and Albright was again in front. 
Kroske tied the count on a beautiful 
long shot and foul conversion, and R. 
Billett's field toss and brother Paul's foul 
gave L. V. C. a three-point edge. 

Ross and then Slingerland registered 
field goals for Albright and the lead 
changed hands for the last time, with the 
Lions going permanently in front while 
the Valleyites fought in vain to over-

Want To Air a Gripe? 

We are right in the middle of that long period between Christmas and Easter 
vacation and are becoming bored with the monotony of classes and books. The 
same old thing week after week is having its effect on the campus. This effect 
makes itself felt by various methods, the biggest one being that fine art of griping, 
or kickir.g. (There is a more expressive word for it in the lexicon of the Mens' 
Dorm, but for ethical reasons we shall call it simply kicking and griping.) 

Of course, we always have those rather vicious personalities who are con- 
tinually running down everything and have a good word for nothing, but it seems 
that almost everyone is having a gripe at everything that represents Lebanon 
Valley or part of the life on our campus. Everything from the food to social 
activity is "taking a ride," and that includes La Vie. Naturally, it can not be said 
that everything is perfect or even suitable, but we shall use that old battered, 
weather-beaten, worn-out excuse in saying that nothing suits everybody. The thing 
that is most griping is that most of the kickers exercise the toes of their shoes by 
way of rationalization. They throw mud at something for one of two reasons or 
both, either because they were not selected to be a part of the thing they gripe 
about or, because they know they could not do any better or even as well as those 
who were chosen to do the appointed job. 

Now don't get us wrong ; we are not saying that one should be a weak-souled, 
passive little Caspar Milquetoast and take everything as it comes. On the con- 
trary, if you have a reasonably legitimate grievance, kick and kick hard against 
anything that hurts your social sense or any sense you may have, but — do your 
kicking properly! 

La Vie Collegienne is your paper and in it your opinions can be excellently 
and most effectively expressed. There is a Contributors' Box in the library and oc- 
casionally, whenever the need arises we run a column called Letters to the Editors. 
If this department were more widly utilized, a large number of such petty 
grievances could be aired and perhaps even righted. Nothing was ever accom- 
plished by griping promiscuously. Air your troubles in La Vie. 



LETTERS TO 

THE EDITORS 



Dear Editor: 

Is it not the duty of a paper to impart 
the news without prejudice? It has 
seemed to a majority of readers that 
lately the La Vie Collegienne has be- 
come very opinionated and most sarcas- 
tic. As I have always been interested 
in the college paper, I regret such a 
definite attitude in its policy. Surely 
the editor and staff do not intentionally 
mean to make the whole aspect of the 
paper seem partisan and sarcastic. I do 
admire the attempt to break away from 
the sugary sweet, never-do-wrong atti- 
tude that had characterized the paper a 
few years back. On the o'.her hand, is 
it necessary for a reader to be confront- 
ed by nothing but sarcasm from the first 
page to the last? The paper mainly con- 



sists of several columns written weekly 
by the same people. Their attitudes are 
much the same, and consequently the pa- 
per appears much the same throughout. 
Couldn't there be more variety? In the 
Clerk of Oxenford and Blithering Bal- 
derdash, for instance. 

In my opinion, Ken Sheaffer, an alum- 
nus who certainly shows interest in his 
Alma Mater, was justified in his re- 
marks about the paper. He is probably 
one of the many alumni who entertain 
similar ideas in regard to the La Vie 
Collegienne, and one who had the pa- 
per enough at heart to express his own 
opinion. Need he be attacked so fero- 
ciously for merely stating what he be- 
lieved? 1 thought the La Vie desired 
and fostered criticism for its own im- 
provement. Such a sarcastic reception 
of constructive criticism surely does not 
encourage the readers to contribute their 
opinions. 



'There formerly were several columns 
that pertained to campus affairs, but 
where are they now? Although there was 
much haranguing over the "late" Rudy- 
Judy column, I believe since its demise 
a great number of objectors have regret- 
ted that it did not continue to flourish. 
An account of campus affairs, amusing 
but unsarcastic, would be accepted ap- 
preciatively by many. The alumni like 
to hear what goes on among the students 
here on campus, but they don't enjoy 
long sarcastic passages which deal with 
nothing of particular interest to them. 

So I say to you, editor and staff of 
the La Vie Collegienne, let's have more 
variety, more genuine entertainment, 
and less sarcasm in our college paper. 
How about it? 

* * * * 

Editor's Note: 

At the risk of proving the writer of 
this letter (whom for convenience we 
shall call Miss X) correct when she 
charges us with being sarcastic (when 
all the time it's a lie, we tell you, it's n 
lie) may we hazard a few remarks on 
her "burning epistle." 

If we extract from her letter the sen- 
tence, "Is it not the duty of a paper to 
impart the news without prejudice?" we 
answer in the affirmative, yes. We really 
try very hard to have all news stories 
reported impartially, and we have re- 
ceived many kicks from various people 
who haven't the faintest conception of 
what a news story is because we cut out 
from an article a coup'e of superimposed 
posies which pertained to them in parti- 
cular and which posies have no place in 
an impartial account. Of course, it has 
been brought to our editorial attention 
that going out of bounds to compliment 
someone is not being prejudiced. It's 
when you don't go out of bounds to com- 
pliment someone. 

Also, we have a sneaking suspicion i 
that our friend Miss X is not up to snuff 
either when it comes to knowing the defi- 
nition of a news article. The body of 
her letter seems to attack us for what 
our columnists and feature writers are 
up to (by the way, what are they up to?) 
when all the time everyone knows, or at 
least we thought they did, that no col- 
umnist contends that he is writing im 
partial news stories. Indeed, it is for 
the sake of injecting personality into a 
newspaper that columnists exist! Miss 
X, if opinion offends you may we advise 
that you read only the articles beginning 
with the orthodox news lead. They're 
practically germ-proof. 

Well, we've only worked down to Miss 
X's second sentence. In her second, she 
assures us that she is the authentic voice 
of the multitude, elected to raise up her 
voice in objection. We'll pass over this 
one as self-evident. 

In her third sentence, she regrets "such 
a definite attitude" in our "policy." O 
K. We'll make our policy and its "atti- 
tude" as indefinite as possible. In fact, 
we won't have any. But then, how will 
we admonish the hoys not to be sarcas- 
tic? That would be having a definite 
policy. 

In the fourth sentence she puts in i 
good word for us. We'll return the com- 
pliment by not making any remarks on 
this one. 

In the fifth our pioneer complex gets 
a hand. 

The sixth begins with "On the other 
hand," and maintains that the demon. 
Sarcasm, overruns the paper "from the 
first page to the last." Damaging testi- 
mony. Yes, we've noticed that even the 
H. W. Miller ad fairly reeks with sar- 
casm lately. We promise an investiga-

long way off, Jack and li s aids have al- 
ready picked a ball room and an or- 
chestra, according to reports. Jack is 
sparing no efforts in order that Philo 
may do their friendly brothers, the Kaios, 
just one better. Whoever zvhis, you have 
a good man, Philo. 



PLAY DAY POSTPONED 



According to Miss Henderson, Play 
Hay will be postponed until next fall. 
The first date decided upon is too 
near May Day, 



tion. 

The seventh says, "The paper mainly 
consists of several columns written week- 
ly by the same people." That is a pretty 
good definition of any weekly paper. 
Ours consists of about 20 columns writ- 
ten weekly by the same twenty-five peo- 
pie. 

We have to make a dead line, so we 
haven't time to consider the remainder 
of the letter so minutely. However, in 
regard to our friendly bout with Mr. 
Sheaffer, all we have to say is that the 
Xenophon guy did not strike the first 
blow, and (in our humble opinion) he 
gave no more than he took. Also, when 
Miss X appoints herself the mouthpiece 
of the alumni and says that "they don't 
enjoy long sarcastic passages," all we've 
got to say is— read the other letter in 
this column. Also, apply at La Vie's 
headquarters and we'll show you a cou- 
ple more.

DELPHIAN TEAS 

Delphian Literary Society entertained 
their mothers at a tea in Delphian Hall 
on Saturday afternoon. There were about 
twenty-five mothers present, and the af- 
ternoon was spent in pleasant sociality. 
Many of the guests felt strange • and 
timid at first, but soon became ac- 
quainted. 

The hall was decorated and arranged 
in a comfortable manner, and the guests 
were entertained with games and con- 
versation. Charlotte Stabley and Rose 
Tschopp gave several charming vocal se- 
lections, while Mrs. C. R. Gingrich 
poured. 

Many of the faculty wives were pres- 
ent to meet the mothers and make them 
feel at home. Delphian extends an invi- 
tation to their mothers to repeat their 
vi it as often as possible.

How 



has college made me a better

tetftble 



maker? Of all the angles discussed 
mine, I believe, is the most de- 
For, most of you in the profes- 



sions 



went to college to train for that 
fession; while few, if any, went to 
[ebaiion Valley to equip themselves as

home- 



.makers. And my other introduc- 
, ren iark is that many of you knew 



-makers, wives, and mothers, who 
r e finely qualified as such, without the 
.id of a college. I put my question to 
•eral people, and found that most non- 
age friends in an awed sort of way 
ff ere very positive that in some definable 
or n on-definable way a college education 
something for a home-maker that 
ff as priceless. Richard, in the quaintly 
mature way that sometimes marks the 
observations of this fourteen-year old, 
said: "It makes you better educated to 
take care of your family." And that just 
about sums it up ! 

A man's reaction to the question is 
that it enables a woman more effectively 
to interpret doctor's orders, and the 
newer knowledge of nutrition, and 
equips a wife to grow mentally, and keep 
poc« with her husband as he advances. 
Whatever makes one grow and improve 
as a person must increase one's equip- 
ment as a home-maker and mother. 
Sometime ago I read that the mark of a 
true teacher was the ability of trans- 
ferring enthusiasms; as psychologists 
say, all parents should be teachers. Cer- 
tainly, college supplies us with enthusi- 
asms, and with the desire and power to 
transfer them to our children. With that 
in mind, I would suggest that Astronomy 
and Biology will be encouraged, as elec- 
tees at least; that no matter where one's 
road leads to in the future, the world 
of stars and growing things that abound 
"ill be intimate, and real associates and 
pleasures. I might mention my own thrill 
at finding Betelgeurse in Orion in any 
winter sky. The tolerant open mind 
which should be the result of a liberal 
education is of great advantage in living 
m this modern world, and in raising 
01 >e's family these days. The close con- 
tacts of a small college call for adjust- 
ments to varied personalities, a habit 
which a home-maker, mother, and wife 
*W find a great asset, in fact a neces- 
slt J' ! As for dish washing, I probably 
j^ld do that just as well without my 
adielor's degree, but I believe it was 
8 training that prompts me to find 
le 'ghtful bits of verse to tack before 
e to engage niy thoughts while the dish

As Kalo's Anniversary president, Her- 
shey is winding up his society career by 
managing the Kappa Lambda dinner- 
dance zvhich will be held this year at the 
palatial and exclusive Hotel Hershey. 
This unassuming local lad, who always

dence. In any event, we'll take odds that 
when "Dop" springs it the dance will be

high-scoring honors for the evening with 
twelve points, while Ralph Billett regis- 
tered ten, Aungst eight, and Kroske six 
to lead the L. V. C. attack. 

The whole Valley outfit played nice 
ball, with Speg and Snell playing nice 
defensive games and Captain Patrizio 
and Bartolet making their final col- 
legiate bows in an auspicious manner. 

In the preliminary contest, Lebanon 
Valley's Flying Freshmen turned in their 
eleventh consecutive win by trouncing the 
Albright Frosh, 43 to 31. The Greenies 
were bit "off" in their shooting during 
the first half and were held to a 15-12 
advantage at half time. However, the 
third period found the Frosh clicking in 
fine style as they registered no less than 
comfortable lead. 

The yearlings were content to coast 
22 points in eight minutes to assume a 
through the final period and seemed to 
be toying with the Red and White quin- 
tet. Smith, Albright guard, was the 
only member of the opposing outfit who 
gave the Valleyites any trouble, and his 
thirteen points were not sufficient to 
bother the high-scoring attack of the 
Frockmen. Tony Rozman, Raymie Frey, 
Bob Brown, and Ed Kress led the scor- 
ing for the Valleyites with 16, 10, 8, and 
5 points respectively as the Frosh con- 
tinued their undefeated jaunt. Only one 
game, a return game with the Hershey 
Industrial School passers, now stands 
between the Valleyites and a completed 
undefeated season.

party caucus. 

Hence it is practically impossible to 
place bets this year since everybody else 
wants to bet that Poloniak, Earnest, and 
the diminutive Mr. Zerbie are dead sure 
shots for the finals the same as you do. 
From underground sources, however, it 
has been ascertained that the odds against 
Vic Fridinger are rapidly falling. Mr. 
Fridinger, though, had no comment to 
make for the press. He refuses to bet 
on himself. 

Things are moving along rapidly 
enough at present to make venturing the 
assertion that time will tell a fairly safe 
one. Unless you shout, nobody will con- 
tradict. But speculation at the moment is 
a bit dangerous, since the prelim matches, 
which are played at the convenience of 
the contestants should be advanced to the 
second or third elimination by the time 
this reaches the presses. 

As in previous- yfea-t'sy no prize will be 
awarded the ultimate champion other 
than his personal satisfaction. 



CONSERVE NOTES 



Sunday afternoon, Mar. 15, the Sem- 
per Fidelis Sunday School Class of the 
First Evangelical Lutheran Church in

* * * * 

At the Tuesday evening recital in En- 
gle Hall a large number of students and 
guests enjoyed a program which included 
several new .features. One of these was 
the Violin Ensemble composed of twelve 
violinists : Martha Elser, Robert Sausser, 
John Zettlemoyer, Virginia Goodall, 
Russell Hatz, Jack Schuler, Robert 
Johns, Kathryn Yingst, Oleta Dietrich, 
George Yokum, Eugene Saylor, and 
Helen Butterwick, directed by Prof. Har- 
old Malsh and accompanied by Nancy 
Bowman. The Ensemble played Im- 
promptu by Mullenhauer and Sommer- 
lust, No. 3 by Schumann. 

Amy Meinhardt, playing the first piano 
part and Miss Beula Duffey, playing the 
second piano part, gave an actistic in- 
terpretation of the First Movement of 
the Concerto in G Minor by Saint-Seans. 
Miss Duffey rushed back to Annville af- 
ter her broadcast over WEAF in order 
to assist in the program. 

The piano solos, Bach's Prelude and 
Fugue in G Minor played by Robert 
Heckman, Arabesque by Debussy and 



Polichinelle by Rachmaninoff rendered 
by Oleta Dietrich were enjoyed by all 
present.

Rode By by Calbreath, and Slumber 
Song by Gretchaninoff were sung by- 
Helen Himmelburger, soprano. 

The string quartet composed of Jack 
Schuler, first violin; Robert Sauser, sec- 
ond violin; Russel Heller, viola; and 
Samuel Harnish, 'cello, rendered An- 
dante Cantabile from Quartet Opus No. 
1 1 by Tschaikowsky very beautifully. 

Kathryn Mills presented as a flute solo 
Andcmtina by Lemare, and Polka by 
Hartley was played by John Moyer on 
his trombone. 

The organ numbers included The 
Chimes of St. Mark's (Venice), Russolo, 
with Catharine Deisher at the console 
and Dawn, Jenkin, played by Richard 
Holstein. 

The accompanists were Kathleen Pool, 
Anita Patschke and Jean Marburger.

The Clerk Of Oxenford 

Three Sonnets And A Snippet 



Once more the birds are singing and 
the trees and flowers are alive. This is 
no time for lifting the voice in anger or 
This is the season of spring, the time of 
for searching after words of wisdom, 
love and wonderful things. Sing, then. 
Muse, and fill sad hearts with the poetry 
of springtime. 

Year follows year in spiritless procession, 
Departed days lapse into memory, 
Time forges life into a mock recession, 
And tempts us to admit futility; 
Yet let not Living dwindle to Existence, 
For man transcends the impenetrable 
hood 

Of soul-unconsciousness, of mere subsist- 
ence, 

That shrouds the forage creatures of the 
brood. 

But rather burst the bellows of the heart 
In gratitude for our great heritage 
Of Poetry, and Literature and Art, 
For that one pinnacle of this bleak age; 
A noble woman, man's supreme reward, 
A creature to be worshipped and adored. 

I miss you, Mignon, in my heart I know 
Tonight the sudden sorrow of regret. 
In quiet hours when love's hot sun has 
set, 

The dear remembrances upon me grow 
Of summer days we watched the white 

sails blow, 
Of songs we danced, of moments our lips 

have met, 

Beneath the ancient night-sky's starry 
net. 

And these are things that only we may 
know. 

O, Mignon, though the past is but a 
dream, 

The present is an ever-blooming rose, 
Raising before us both a blessed gleam 
Of hope for what the future only knows. 
And on the hearth of halls long cold and 
dark, 

There glimmers now a tiny living spark. 

* * * * 

The room has grown as cold as the snow- 
scaped earth 

Since there upon that creaky chair you 
sat, 

Tilting your lovely eyes in righteous 
mirth 

At some vain boast of mine. . . . Our lit- 
tle chat 

Seemed pleasing to you. Over the faded 
floor 

Flickered a shadow from the old green 
lamp 

On the quaint red music cabinet by the 
door. 

Fronn far below came the traveller's 

muffled tramp. 
Somehow each dusty portrait on the wall 
Lifted its sleepy brows when you came 

near; 

Now they are dumb and gaze upon me, 
all, 

In horrible reproach. . . . Now all that's 
here 

Is the empty glass from which you 

sipped a toast, 
Two written words, the echo of my boast. 

* * * * 

With glance uplifted 

Askance I sifted 

Th' accentuate shape, 

The virginal shape, 

In yellow clad brightly, 

In yellow clad tightly, 

Of the sightly, sprightly, white-turbaned 
young maiden, 

Bewitching, heart-twitching young maid- 
en 

With charms o'erladen.

Notes On Books 



It has been said by many that one of 
the most outstanding ways of illuminat- 
ing and enriching one's experiences is 
by the art of creative reading. Certainly 
it cannot be denied that good books con- 
tribute greatly to developing one's pow- 
er of intellect and knowledge and con- 
duct, the power of beauty and the power 
of social life and manners.

"New Pathways in Science." by Sir 
Arthur Eddington: In the opening chap- 
ters of this book, the author explains 
the philosophic outlook of modern sci- 
ence and shows how the scientific pic- 
ture of the world described in physics 
is related to the familiar story in our 
minds. Sir Arthur wirtes with particu- 
lar brilliance on the philosophical impli- 
cations of the modern theories of the 
universe. "New Pathways in Science" 
deals with such topics as the end of the 
minds. Sir Arthur writes with partial- 
ity, expanding universe, and criticisms 
and controversies winch have centered 
around the diverse views concerning the 
nature of the universe. 



Blithering Balderdash 



By Xenophon, the Stooge 



Hal Phillips, whose raiment is week- 
ly rinsed, wrung, and sometimes repaired 
by Aggie, one of the more permanent 
fixtures in the Men's dorm, enlightened 
us the other day concerning what seemed 
quite a mystifying procedure to our un- 
initiate. Holding converse with the 
aforesaid of a recent afternoon in the 
aforesaid's boudoir whilst he ensheathed 
himself in the more basic features of the 
masculine sartorialia, we were so stupen- 
dously stupefied that our rather dithy- 
rambic ramblings fell far enough into a 
dithering doldrum to cause us to con- 
clude our remarks with a feebly gasped 
preposition and all on the account of a 
white shirt he was donning with a degree 
of difficulty only exceeded by that of in- 
terpreting his indistinct mutterings, 
which, we suspect, were,' if not actually 
profane, at least listing distinctly in the 
direction of malediction. This unusual 
shirt, while to all superficial investiga- 
tions appearing to be of the convention- 
al type, departed from precedent abrupt- 
ly in the back — it lacked what a biologi- 
cal friend calls a caudal appendage. Per- 
sonally, however, we call the missing sec- 
tion a tail — and know how to pronounce 
it too. Where the tail should have been 
there was but blank expanse neatly 
hemmed with white thread. 

Intrigued, we set forth to solve the 
mystery of the truncated shirt-tail, and 
straightway ran into John Trego, who is 
another of Aggie's more or less content- 
ed customers. We gave up when he 
proudly exhibited a blue shirt to which 
was attached Mr. Phillips' white shirt- 
tail.

a breath of hot air wherewith to serve 
the constituency, we noted Eleanor

suming popsicles. . . Bill Kirkpatrick be-

Beamesderfer than he wotted, at a more 
exciting moment during the prelim, it 
caught him lapsing into furious Dutch 
invective, 'tis said . . . Carl Meyers, 
alumnus, with his sister and a girl friend, 
preserved a strict, if laborious decorum. 
. . . Gongloff in company with a terrific 
blonde.

We have been speculating all week 
about the bedstead we spotted recently 
in a field behind the railroad station. 
Though much the worse for a long, hard 
winter out where the big blasts grow, it 
ostensibly was once part of the equip- 
ment belonging to room 58 of the Men's 
Dorm. How these things do get around. 
It's beyond us, that's what it Is.

having nomadic tabbies kidnapped by

proficiency in the fine art of rat- and

To get happiness from life

The women's affirmative debating team 
traveled to Bucknell University and Ju- 
niata University Wednesday and Thurs- 
day. The girls taking the trip were Ma- 
rian Leisey, Winona Shroff, Razelle Le- 
vitz, and Emma Mary Smyser. Winona 
Shroff is debating in the place of Louise 
Gillan. 

The dual debates with the University 
of Maryland were held Wednesday, 
March 16, by the men's debating teams. 
Charles Kinney and William Clark de- 
bated at University of Maryland. Boyd 
Shaffer and Calvin Reber debated in 
Philo Hall. Despite the weather, an un- 
usual crowd was present. Results were

Cast Is Announced For 
"Bill Of Divorcement" 



Dr. Wallace Selects Philo-Clio Play 
Cast ; Phillips Assists. 



The results of the tryouts for the 
Philo-Clio play, Bill of Divorcement, 
held last Monday are as follows : 

Margaret, Teresa Stefan ; Sydney, 
Jean McKeag; Hester, Jane Shellen- 
berger ; Bassctt, Lena Risser ; Hilary, 
Robert Tschop ; Gray, Kenneth East- 
land ; Kit, Lester Krone; Dr. Alliott, 
William Earnest ; Rev. Pumphrey, Cur- 
vin Thompson. 

Rehearsal began Tuesday evening. 
There was an unusual wealth of material 
among the society members this year and 
competition proved very keen. Five 
members of the cast are experienced, 
Miss McKeag, Mr. Earnest, and Mr. 
Krone having played in last year's suc- 
cess, Childem of the Moon ; Miss Shel- 
lenberger, the shrewish Puritan of The 
Devil's Disciple; Mr. Earnest and Mr. 
Eastland, the amiable islanders in The 
Admirable Crichton. With these mem- 
bers as a nucleus and with the promising 
newcomers, the production shapes up as 
a stand-out attraction. Dr. Wallace and 
Harold Phillips casted the piece and will 
direct. Properties will be under the 
management of Ed Schmidt and Allen

Snavely Chosen Coach 
At Cornell University 

LEB. VALLEY ALUMNUS 



Former L. V. Captain Of Major 
Sports Gets Three Year Contract. 



On Mar. 13 the sports board of Cor- 
nell University ratified the choice of 
Carl G. Snavely, L. V. C. '15, as head 
football coach under a three year con- 
tract. He will succeed the veteran Gil- 
mour Dobie who resigned Feb. 1 after 
sixteen seasons. Snavely has resigned his 
position as head coach at the University 
of North Carolina where he established 
an enviable record during his stay there. 

Snavely took his A. B. degree at Leb- 
anon Valley in 191 5 and captained the 
football and basketball teams and played 
baseball. He earned a Master's degree at 
Bucknell and completed further work at 
Perm State. 

At North Carolina, Snavely's teams in 
two seasons won fifteen games, lost two, 
and tied one. In seven years at Buck- 
nell his teams lost only two home games. 
In college coaching" he has sent teams to 
fifty-seven victories, against eighteen de- 
feats and nine ties. "Hooks" Mylin, head 
coach at Lebanon Valley for many years, 
now has the Bucknell post that Snavely 
vacated. 

The metropolitan newspapers of recent 
dates have carried full accounts of 
Snavely's life and record. May we refer 
the reader to the sports section of the 
New York Times for Mar. 14 in which a 
large account and picture of the Leb- 
anon Valley man appear. 



CLIONIAN SOCIETY 
CONDUCTS MEETING 



Clionian Literary Society conducted 
last week another of the Friday evening 
society meetings, which it has been hav- 
ing this semester. Ruth Buck conducted 
the business session. She gave a report 
on the meeting of the officers of the four 
societies with Dr. Lynch, and plans for 
a social hour in the gym after dinner 
each evening were discussed. Clio thinks 
there should be at least three of these 
social hours during the week.

Helen Weels Enlightens Ink Blots 

As Kitty Karr Goes Philosophical 



The Green Blotter Club held its meet- 
ing Thursday evening, Mar. 12, at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble. The meet- 
ing was called to order by the presi- 
dent, Ixmis Straub. He called the roll, 
a practice which he started at the last 
meeting, since norm de plume were in- 
troduced for each member of the organi- 
zation. Those present were: Lena Lyt- 
Ue, Kitty Karr, Helen Weels, Anna 
Konda, and Lucy Boltz. There was no 
old business brought up, so new business 
was discussed. It was agreed that the 
next meeting of the club would be open 
to friends of the members, and especial- 
ly the literary-minded people of the 
campus. This meeting will be held April 



2. Also the matter of a Green Blotter 
Supplement to La Vie was discussed. 

President Straub then appointed Kit- 
ty Karr critic for the evening. Lena 
Lyttle read a one-act play entitled, A 
Nocturne in the Minor. Kitty Karr then 
read her Philosophical Discussion of 
Berkeley's Theories. A discussion of 
modern and ancient philosophers and 
their ideas followed. A reading discus- 
sion of a student's problems entitled, 
O Where, O Where Hus My Little Dog 
Gone? was then presented by Helen 
Weels. Anna Konda then read her inter- 
pretation of a fitting complementary 
Stanza to a stanza she had read. Anoth-

Kalo Completes Plans 
For Anniversary Week 

"Harrisonians" Will Play At Dinner 
Dance; Play Shapes Up. 



The Kalos, their partners, and guests, 
will spend the evening of Mar. 28 at the 
Hotel Hershey in celebration of Kappa 
Lamda's anniversary. Plans are just 
about complete for the big social event 
of the year. The orchestra committee has 
secured the well-known Harris onions as 
the music makers of the evening and they 
will be led that night by Prof. Goodall 
who organized this orchestra a few sea- 
sons ago. 

The play, which will be given on Fri- 
day night preceding the dinner-dance, 
is in the final stages of production and 
the polishing process is now being used 
by the director. Kalo and Delphian have 
combined to offer their members and 
friends a fine production in Barry's 
"You and I." Tickets for both societies 
will be ready for distribution on Monday. 



"New Deal In Proms '

PREXY TALKS TO PRESS 



Famous Spring Formal Probably An 
Open Dance; Numerous Innovations 
Planned. 



Proms and rumors of proms are the 
order of the spring season. There lingers 
in every maiden's heart the secret desire 
to make the Junior Prom, the gayest 
event of the spring social season, the 
epitome of frolic and light-heartedness, 
when winter's sadness is discarded and 
the breath of budding flowers floats 
about the dancers. Never is the spirit of 
loveliness in so many hearts, never are 
capers so merry as at this night of all 
nights. 

The spirit of Prom weekend walks the 
campus already. You don't believe me? 
What would you say if I said I met him 
yesterday? Weill, I did— and this is 
what he told me.

P. Billet Tops Net 
League High Scorers 

AUNGST RANKS EIGHTH 



Brilliant Harrisburger Tallies 12 
Points Making 37 Foul Tosses. 



Paul Billett, Lebanon Valley's stellar 
forward, finished his second year of in- 
tercollegiate basketball by annexing high 
scoring honors in the Eastern Pennsyl- 
vania Collegiate League. He registered 
121 points to outscore his nearest com- 
petitor, Morris, of Gettysburg, by four 
points. Paul was by far the outstanding 
performer or the Valley team, not only 
in his high-scoring game but in his 
steady and dependable floor work, both 
on the offence and defence. Although 
Billett had only 42 field goals to Morris' 
50, his enviable record of 37 conversions 
out of 60 tries enabled him to cop the 
scoring honors. 

Aungst was the second high-scoring 
man on the L. V. team. He ended eighth 
in the league with 85 points, garnered on 
32 field goals and 21 fouls. R. Billett 
ended 17th with a total of 66 points. 
Kroske, Patrizio, Speg, Snell and Bar- 
tolet followed the trio leaders in the 
order named. 

In team scoring the championship F. 
and M. five headed the field with 475 
points. This impressive total was gar- 
nered while they allowed their opponents 
only 375 points, F. and M.'s great team 
heading the field both offensively and de- 
fensively. This record is even more en- 
viable considering the fact that F. and M. 
was allowed only 156 tries and converted 
but 79 of them. In this respect only were

Valley concluded the season in a sixth 
place tie with Muhlenberg. The Valley- 
ites totaled 402 points and allowed the 
opposition 485. their offensive attack

204 foul tries. 



Intra-Mural Basketball 
Nears End Of Season 



The intra-mural moguls of L. V. C. 
basketball are at the moment buried in 
paper considerably worse than John D. 
figuring out his income tax; the boys 
are simply occupied with swimming- 
through the vasty deep of end-of-the- 
season statistics, which they forecast 
with Johnsonian optimism, will be all 
neatly mopped up in time for the next 
issue. 

As matters stand at present, with a 
number of games remaining to be played, 
interest still remains at an all-time ze- 
nith. What is worse, the boys insist on 
being so unpredictable that it is impos- 
sible to say who will wind up the busi- 
ness on top of the stack. However, that

birthday occurs in January, but last 
Sunday seemed to be the first convenient 
opportunity to celebrate. A turkey was 
consumed, but not an ordinary bird. This 
one had a history. Dr. Struble was left 
with a turkey in a trade for his pet goat, 
which trade took place last fall. He was 
free to collect the bird whenever he want- 
ed it. Since they were invited out to din- 
ner on Thanksgiving and Christmas, they 
didn't need it. They decided that the 
turkey should be decapitated on Dr. 
Struble's birthday. And that was the 
story of the bird that was traded for a 
goat.

OUR HERITAGE FROM THE 1920's 
The 1920's died a rather sudden death. 
A very sad death, too. There was weep- 
ing and wailing all over the country. 
They had suffered terribly the last few 
months and then mericfully died. We 
turned away with a sigh — almost of re- 
lief — and started to look for better 
things. 

But, wait. There is still a will to be 
read, an estate to be divided, debts to be 
paid. What have they left to us? All 
their personal belongings? Yes, a whoie 
trunkful, and we couldn't refuse them. 
They were our natural heritage, to be 
accepted and disposed of as best we 
could. 

We lifted the lid from the trunk. 
There on top lay a red flag. We gazed at 
it passively, recalling how the deceased 
had ranted and raged at even a glimpse 
of it. Somehow it stood for a new order 
of things. Oh, perhaps not for America, 
but it certainly looks all right over the 
Kremlin. We lifted the flag and dropped 
it on the floor beside the trunk. 

A hip flask ! A beautiful silver plated 
one with a panorama of design. Young 
women in their "teens" and twenties, in 
knee-length dresses and with cigarettes 
dangling from their lips, stand drinking 
at bars with one foot on the railing. 
Young men— staggering, stumbling, ties 
askew, clothing rumpled. Cars speeding 
along at seventy miles per hour. Cars 
parked in shady lanes. Thousands upon 
thousands of young people with an utter 
disregard for law and parental advice, 
interested only in the race against each 
other to see who can go the fastest and 
keep on going the longest. Something 
has to be done to that hip flask; it can't 
be left as it is. 



one of the few nice things the 1920's [efl 
us we dropped and broke beyond repair. 

And what have we here? An army of 
tin soldiers— but in civilian clothes, 
armed to the teeth with machine-guns 
and bombs. Gangsters, racketeers, mur- 
derers. They hold by methods all their 
own a population of one hundred and 
twenty million people subservient to 
their will. Their grasp must be broken 
and the lot of them thrown into the fire. 

And here a book stares us in the face. 
In large bold type on the cover— SEX, 
by Dr. H. O. Kum. Preface page — "a 
frank discussion of sex and sex problems 
which should be of interest to all men 
and women." We leaf through several 
pages, but it does not appeal to us. Yes, 
we are still frank about sex, but not 
with such obvious effort. 

And at the bottom— oh horrors! We 
try to close our eyes to the picture, but 
we cannot. The longer we gaze the more 
vivid and realistic it becomes. Millions 
of ragged men with empty bellies march- 
ing the street. Children starving. We 
are balked at every effort to blot out 
the picture. Can blood wash it clean?— 
or will it take centuries for it to slowly 
fade, until it can be seen no more? 

Oh that we would not have had to ac- 
cept I his heritage— a trunkful of prob- 
lems with no clue to the answers.

CONSERVE NOTES 



The Conservatory Dinner Dance which 
was held at the General Sutter Hotel in 
Lititz last Friday evening, Mar. 13, was 
the most successful formal dance the 
Conservatory has ever held. 

A delicious dinner was served to ap- 
proximately ninety-five people in a bean- 
Lifully decorated dining hall, where a 
green and white color scheme was car- 
ried out. Those of us who have seen the 
place know that it is cozy as well as 
quaint, and in being so, lends a pleasing- 
atmosphere to dances. 

The Conservatory people thoroughly 
enjoyed the whole evening with the din- 
ner during the first part and dancing 
to the varied program of the Greystone 
Orchestra during the latter part of the 
evening.

^ W. R- To Present 
Major Campus 
Play Production 



IVlrs. Wilt To Coach Piece With Dr. 
Wallace Assisting. 



On Tuesday evening, April 21, the Life 
yyork Recruits will present as their ma- 
• or production of the year, Jerome K. 
Jerome's The Passing of the Third Floor 
pack. The play, while not essentially a 
jgjjgious drama, embodies within it sev- 
era l of the fundamental principles of 
the society, in that the play is based 
upon happiness secured by true love, 
kindness, honesty, and service. 

The scene is laid in a modest board- 
ing-house in London managed by Mrs. 
Sharpe, who is all that her name implies. 
Her greatest pleasure in life is to see 
how much she can get out of her board- 
ers. They represent a variety of pro- 
fessions in life: — a retired book-maker, 
a young artist who is selling his soul for 
love, a retired major who is penniless, 
his wife, with whom he is constantly 
arguing, their daughter, beautiful but 
eheap, a clever but crooked business man 
and his henchman, an old maid who does 
her best to look 19, and a first cousin to 
the baronet. The maid, a product of 
the work house, is a saucy, impudent 
child. Into this house, where deception, 
cheapness, unhappiness, and even dis- 
honesty struggle for supremacy comes a 
stranger whom they call "the Third Sto- 
ry Back." By his compelling kindness, 
gentleness, and sympathy for them he 
draws out the real nature of each indi- 
vidual and re-creates them into new be- 
ings. 

The play will be presented by the 
members of the organization under the 
direction of Mrs. Wilt, with the assist- 
ance and advise of Dr. Wallace. The 
proceeds will be used to finance a proj- 
e ct which the society has been contem- 
plating for some time.

The Clerk Of Oxenford 



— gladly woldc he kmc and gladly teche 



Just exactly what is a college campus? 
—A group of people living within the 
same small confines and each struggling 
for superiority over the rest. The in- 
dividual vs. society. It is an issue that 
has been great in the history of the 
world. Here on our campus the same 
issue applies. The life each one of us 
lives greatly affects the lives of those 
around us. Students living in such close 
daily contact are bound to be involved 
in some conflicts. There are so many 
contributing factors to dissatisfaction 
among the members of a group. 

One of the main difficulties in the cam- 
pus of a small college is the tendency of 
everyone to mind everyone else's busi- 
ness. This is conducive to gossip— 
which becomes ugly if it continues to 
exist. The best policy for us who live 
here is to live our own lives but not so 
as to conflict with society. Don't depend 
on others to settle your problems. They 
don't know you as well as you know 
yourself, so they couldn't advise you sin- 
cerely. Take the advice of others when 
offered but take it with a grain of salt. 
Weigh their opinions and then make your 
own decisions. 

Be friendly with everyone, but not too 
friendly. This avoids making enemies, 
unless that is one of your favorite occu- 
pations. This also prevents confessing 
your personal thoughts to those who 
profess to be your friend and give proof 
of this fact by disclosing your confidence 
at the earliest opportunity to the cam- 
pus in general. Of course, best friends 
confide in each other, but there should 
be a limit to their confidences. The temp- 
tation is too great to disclose it to oth- 
ers, and friendships are broken too eas- 
ily that way. 

The Golden Rule always holds good— 
but how few of us really keep it in mind. 
Who knows— the theory of the magnifi- 
cent obsession may hold true. You shall 
or shall not benefit according to your 
treatment of others. 

Are you sarcastic? Jealous? Suspi- 
cious? Are you a desirable friend? What 
have you that is worthwhile to others? 
Do you feel you aren't appreciated? 
Why do you deserve to be appreciated? 
Do you try to make life pleasant for 
others? Why are you better than anyone 
else, that people should admire, respect, 
and appreciate you? What do you con- 
tribute of good to the campus and soci- 
ety? Do you follow the rules of the cam- 
pus? In general — do you work for the 
benefit of yourself alone, or that of so- 
ciety?

er of Anna's poems was entitled, Rocked

both very favorably received. Lucy Boltz 
presented a number of poems which 
might suitably be called Ramblings. A 
short discussion preceded the serving of 
Mrs. Struble's unique refreshments, and 
the club meeting dispersed.

Notes On Books 

"I Write As I Please," by Walter Du- 
ranty: Duranty is a newspaper man 
whose day-to-day dispatches from Eu- 
rope have recorded history in the mak- 
ing. As Moscow correspondent of the 
New York Times since 1920, he has 
gained such unrivalled knowledge of the 
Russian experiment and the post-war 
world that his stories have achieved long- 
ran tre significance. 

The book is part history, part journal- 
Ism, part autobigraphy, all adventure. 
Above all, it is a personal record of < 
man who has been and is still an eye- 
witness of one of the great social dramas 
of all time. 



Frosh Trounce Hershey 
To End Perfect Season 



Yearling Basketballers Coast Through 
41-17. 



In their second meeting with the Her- 
shey Industrial School dribblers this 
season, Lebanon Valley's sensational 
Flying Freshmen registered their twelfth 
consecutive win by the one-sided score 
of 41-17. 

The game, played at Hershey, was an- 
other typical Frosh victory — the Indus- 
trial passers never had a look-in on the 
ball game and were outplayed in every 
department of play from beginning to 
end. Rozman accounted for thirteen 
points to lead the attack of the Greenies, 
while Raymie Frey was right at his heels 
with twelve points and Kress registered 
ten. None of the Hershey tossers was 
able to gain more than one field goal 
against the excellent defense displayed 
by the Blue and White yearlings.

L. V. Stage 



It is interesting to observe that the 
Philo-Clio play to be presented this year 
was produced by Kalo in 1927. We heard 
one Kalo condescendingly remark to a 
Philo, "Yes, any time you get stuck with 
it, just come around and we'll be per- 
fectly willing to give you a few point- 
ers." W e stopped listening when the 

Philo got to nine and a half. 

* * * * 

Lloyd Berger's dramatic career is pro- 
gressing nicely. Last year in the Greek 
play, he was a corpse; this year, in 
Where the Cross Is Made, he has ad- 
vanced to the stage of being a ghost. 
» # # * 

You can't fool Hal Phillips, no sir! 
He conceived the idea of presenting 
Where the Cross Is Made. The publisher 
of the copies of it conceived the idea of 
charging one dollar per. Did our friend, 
the W. & B. president, give up his no- 
tion or did he put the club in the red to 
carry it out? Neither. He sat down and 
typed the manuscripts — the play is on its 
way. 



* # * » 



When Kalo gave Bill of Divorcement, 
the part of Alliott, which this year will 
be played by Bill Earnest, was taken 
by J. Gordon Star, now an English 
teacher in Annville High School. The 
part of Hilary, to be played by Bob 
Tschopp, was taken by Henry Aungst, a 
cousin of Clarence's. The part of Bas- 
sett was, oddly enough, played by a 
man, Norman Vanderwall. We give Mr. 
Vanderwall the benefit of the doubt and 
assume that the part was first converted 
into that of a man servant. 

* * * * 

One of the encouraging factors in the 
prospects for the Philo-Clio play is the 
traditionally splendid spirit of "Ed" 
Schmidt and Allen Rutherford, who will 



ad as stage men. It has been said of 
them that if the director ordered an 
African elephant they would unquestion- 
ably produce it inside of twenty-four 
hours — even if they had to "stick up" a 
circus parade. 

* * * * 
We dropped in on Kalo-Delphian play 
rehearsal the other night, and Bob Til- 
ford gave us some inside information. 
He told us confidentially that he was the 
best one in the cast. We should have 
immediately begun to load our old "22" 
— with insect exterminator — if we hadn't 
heard him wink when he said it.

While no one was looking, however, 
some snake in the gymnasium wrote finis 
on the inter-class games, and hence here 
endeth the first lesson. No arithmetic 
was available in this department either. 



Y. W. TEA 



The Y. W. C. A. entertained the Sen- 
ior and Sophomore girls together yes- 
terday in North Hall parlor from 3:30 
to 5:30 at the annual spring tea. There 
were bridge tables and games, and the 
group was entertained with a short pro- 
gram by their classmates. Helen Sum- 
my sang a group of soprano numbers; 
Rae Anna Reber played a cornet solo; 
Christine Yoder, contralto, represented 
her class with several songs. 

Tea was served by members of the 
Freshman Y cabinet, and Mrs. Green 
and Mrs. Stonecipher poured. The re- 
freshments were appropriate to St. Pa- 
trick's day. Grace Naugle acted as host- 
ess for the afternoon.

Blithering Balderdash 



By Xenophon, the Stooge 



Since we are informed that a large 
number of our clients are victims of 
moribundia to the extent that they sim- 
ply can't resist cemeteries, we are quite 
optimistic about the possibility of being 
forgiven for finding this week's sermon 
in stones. To ease the public conscience 
about the matter, we hasten to add that 
they were really very nice stones — fine, 
upstanding, and firm. Furthermore, they 
all belong to the genus sarcophagus, and 
instead of running whither and worse of 
an evening, they stay respectably enough 
exactly where they've been put, which is 
in the Evergreen Cemetery.

While peacefully browsing in contem- 
plation of the renaissance of all the 
rather languescent twiddle that pres- 
ages this spring nonsense, we were sud- 
denly confronted with a stern hand grav- 
en out of rock, ladies and gentlemen, 
real material rock. It pointed in a gen- 
erally upward direction and in a scarce-

Rae Anna Reber, poetry read by Sylva

On Tuesday, Clio began a bridge tour- 
nament, which is being conducted in the

courage the use of the hall by members, 
and to add another activity in order to

quested, "Meet me there." We have been 
unable to keep the appointment. 

Owing to the unfortunate fact that 
both parties concerned in this little ex- 
ample of domestic high-jinkery have been 
somewhat dead for a hundred years or 
so, it was a little difficult to obtain first- 
hand information, of course, but we nev- 
ertheless suspect that the course of true 
love must have been somewhat contrary 
betimes for one J — N — and his wife, 
Elizabeth Ault, for when she died, did he 
not cause to be inscribed on her sepul- 
chre the cheerful intelligence, "Yea, the 
Lord is merciful"? Allow us to assure 
the writers-in-to-protest-with-righteous- 
indignation that he did — and even rein- 
forced his opinion with Biblical proof 
that the Lord is also both gracious and 
righteous. 

* * * * 

Our submoronic subaltern, Senna- 
cherib, the sardine man, does not sub- 
scribe to the theory that the pun is the 
lowest form of humor. We, therefore, 
excused him for giving vent to specula- 
tion on the subject of whether or not 
the town, considered by the large, had 
gone dry because the "Whiskeyman" was 
occupied solely at the moment with 
daisy-promotion. He also has grave 
doubts concerning whether a slab of 
granite of rather ponderous proportions 
was not indulging in the gentle art of 
understatement when it came out boldly 
with the single word, LIGHT. He did 
not, however, attempt to lift it.

The Crozer Theological Seminary at- 
tachment recently acquired by Virginia 
Summers has at last been led off Mr. 
Bunyan's famous unswerving thorough- 
fare to Zion county by the possibly less 
than seraphic sylphs who populate the 
more northern extremities of Give-the- 
•rrass-a-chance Land. 

Said sylphs having heard — through 
women's intuition, we presume and hope 
— that in room six in that docile deposi- 
tory of the masculine element, the men's 
dorm, there is one more bed than occu- 
pants — they generously provided Mr. 
Neuman, the previously discussed C.T. 
S.a., with where to lay his weary dome 
therein. The ladies, however, can not be 
expected to think of everything — they 
have to leave something for the men — 
and accordingly they neglected to in- 
form Andy, Kell, and Kahl who live in 
room six, and that's for certain. As a 
result, Mr. Neurnan had to enter by the 
back window — he looked very graceful, 
we must say, standing on an ash-can 
which he had placed in a wheel-barrow. 
To add to the gravity of the situation, 
Mr. Kahl came in alone and sober. He 
paid no attention to Mr. Neuman, sup- 
posing him to be a friend of Anderson's 
or Kelt's. Da capo, Mr. Kell, and like- 
wise, Mr. Anderson. Result: Mr. Neu- 
n an received little attention.

Notes On Books 

"Discover;/," by Admiral Richard 
Byrd: Back from the twilight of an ice 
age, Admiral Byrd lias come with a sto- 
ry of sights that men have hardly 
dreamed of, sights that no human eye 
has ever witnessed before— an account of 
difficulties met and overcome in the 
"loveliest and most unforgiving of con- 
tinents." Using the most primitive means 
and the most modern, pushing on by 
ship, dog team, and airplane, Admiral 
Byrd and his men pem-trated to the 
very heart of the Antarctic. There, with 
the latest scientific instruments, they 
coaxed from the age-old ice secrets that 
have been locked there since the world 
was young. For the first time the Ant- 
arctic ice cap was tapped by seismic 
soundings, and the depth of the ice de- 
termined. On the rim of the polar pla- 
teau, 180 miles from the South Pole it- 
self, a sledging party came upon the 
petrified remnants of semi-tropical vege- 
tation; and on the glacierized slopes of 
the Edsel Ford Range another party dis- 
covered with wonder a rare profusion 
of Antarctic flora, hints of mineral wealth 
and microscopic life. 

Now in this great book Admiral Byrd 
tells the whole magnificent story of geo- 
graphical exploration, scientific achieve- 
ments, and adventure. Here is the liv- 
ing, glowing, human story of discovery 
—of man pitted against difficulties and 
dangers never before encountered — 
planes crashing on ice fields; men 
"squeaking" through major operations 
thousands of miles from civilization; his 
ship creeping for days across the Devil's 
Graveyard where great bergs lay hidden 
in the fog on every hand; the reactions 
of a man who faced self-imposed isola- 
tions for the benefit of science.

p r0 f. Gingrich's Sociology Class Pro- 
ves Food and Clothes; Gives Needy 
"Kids" a Treat. 



The Sociology class under Prof. C. R. 
Ging ri ch in relation to their study of 

elfare work has provided a fund to be 
"ed in relief work. Beatrice Zamojski, 
Barbara Sloan, Lucille Hawthorne, Al- 
bert Anderson, and John Walmer who 
are especially interested in that line of 
wo rk have, through the aid of the town 
latare committee, contacted local fa- 
milies and reported much poverty and 
suffering to the class. 

Members of the class have solicited 
from their homes and friends clothes 
and necessities which the case workers 
have carried to the needy. 

Since the welfare committee in town 
provides the bare necessities of life, the 
class agreed to spend a small amount of 
the fund for amusement. It was found 
that there were many children in town 
who had never seen a movie. Others 
had been to the movies once or twice. 
The manager of the local theater agreed 
to give the class a special rate and Bea- 
trice Zamojski and June Gingrich 
picked out the deserving children and 
gave them tickets personally. They were 
told to be at the movies Saturday after- 
noon at 2:15. That afternoon at 1:00 
o'clock there was an excited group of 
kiddies' waiting to see their first movie. 

The class contributed $5.00 to the 
Harrisburg flood victims, realizing that 
the money could not be used in a more 
necessary cause. 

Thus far the amount drawn from the 
treasury as reported by Albert Ander- 
son, the class treasurer is $10.81 includ- 
ing: 

$5.00— Harrisburg relief ; $1.35— milk 
for undernourished children; $3.96 — a 
m °vie trip for 66 children; $.50— coal 
ior a needy family.

George Jacobs Speaks 
To Commerce Club Mon. 



Lebanon Store Head Gives Informa- 
tive Talks At First Meeting Of Year. 



The Commerce Club, which is com- 
prised of all members of the department 
of Business Administration, had its first 
meeting of the year on Monday night. 
All the meetings planned previously had 
failed to materialize, since several speak- 
ers who had been engaged were unable 
to appear at the last minute. However, 
the club is now ready for an active 
spring season of meetings. 

Albert Anderson, president of the 
club, introduced to a rather small but 
interested group of listeners the speaker 
for the evening, Mr. George Jacobs, 
president of the Bon Ton Department 
Store in Lebanon. Mr. Jacobs is well- 
known to the club, as he has spoken to 
the members before. His pleasant man- 
ner of address and his informality as 
well as his wide breadth of information 
combined to make his address both in- 
formative and enjoyable. He spoke con- 
cerning the construction of the various 
departments of an average store and 
their relationships to one another. 
Through a chart which he had prepared, 
he was able to show the students just 
how the administrative forces of a store 
are in some respects supplementary to 
one another and in other respects almost 
entirely independent. The audience had 
many questions to ask Mr. Jacobs con- 
cerning positions in department stores,

AID FLOOD VICTIMS 

Several Lebanon Valley College 
students have been working in the 
nearby flooded districts. Boyd Shaf- 
fer, member of the Lebanon National 
Guards, is with that troop at Sun- 
bury. Emma Mary Smyser and Es- 
ther Flom were caring for the refu- 
gees at Red Cross posts in Harris- 
burg, Esther being on night duty at 
the John Harris High School, while 
Emma Mary was in charge of the 
sorting and distributing of men's 
clothing at the Bricker Building. Al- 
vin Grove was patrolling and rescu- 
ing from a motor boat in the streets 
in Riverside and upper Harrisburg. 



"YOU AND I" CAST READY 



Many Guests Will Attend Kappa 
Anniversary Functions. 



The Kalos and their guests are all set 
for their big week-end of the year, the 
Kalo Anniversary. The Kalo-Uelphian 
play You and I is scheduled for a final 
dress rehearsal tonight and promises to 
be an interesting and entertaining piece 
when staged tomorrow evening at 8:00 
o'clock on the Chapel stage. The usual 
reception and dance will be held in the 
gym following the play, and many old 
friends and Kappa Lambdas will be 
seen in their old Ad building stamping 
ground once more. 

Saturday night the dinner-dance in the 
Hotel Hershey will get under way at 
7:00 o'clock, according to the Anniver- 
sary president, Paul Hershey. The din- 
ner will be served in the hotel's Main 
Dining Hall, and the dancing in the pa- 
latial Spanish Room, with the orchestra 
tuning up at 7:30. Over 80 couples will 
attend with the chaperones as follows: 
Prof, and Mrs. Rutledge, Prof. Stokes, 
Miss Janet Miller, Miss Wood, Dr. 
Schweigert, Dr. and Mrs. Derickson, Dr. 
and Mrs. Light, and Dr. and Mrs. Stone- 
cipher. 

Among the off-campus guests for the 
dinner-dance will be Messrs. Goodman, 

Gardner Savior, John Sloat, Rubio Mil- 
ler, Sweeney Light, Richard Craumer, 
Charles Suavely and their partners. The 
entire faculty is invited to the Friday 
evening functions. 

Those in charge of arrangements for 
Saturday night include: Jay Musser, who 
has charge of seating in the dining room; 
Robert Cassel, who is supervising trans- 
portation; Anthony Jagnesak, the or- 
chestra committee chairman; Charles 
Kinney, the favor committee chairman. 
Invitations for the dance are by Louise 
Stoner and were designed and handmade 
by her. 



Y ACTIVITIES 

The last of the annual spring teas 
sponsored by the Y. W. C. A. was given 
for the Junior and Freshman girls on 
Wednesday afternoon. The girls played 
bridge and various games, and were en- 
tertained with a short program by mem- 
bers of their class. Gayle Mountz sang 
several delightful numbers. Dorothy 
Zeiters played a cello solo, and Amy 
Meinhardt gave a piano solo. 

Tea was served by the Sophomore Y 
cabinet members. Grace Naugle was 
hostess ; Mrs. Wallace and Madame 
Green poured. 

Y vespers were held in the Y room of 
the Men's dorm, Sunday evening, under 
the direction of the new devotional 
chairman, Theodore Loose. Louis 
Straub, the new president, gave an in- 
spiring talk on the subject of values. 
A new series of meetings has been 
planned which will be of interest to all 
new students. Thomas Guinavan read 
scripture and led in prayer. Harold 
Beamesderfer presided at the piano. 



Jagnesak. And Kreamer Score As L. 
V. Winds Up Season. 



On Tuesday, Mar. 17, the girls closed 
their basketball season by defeating 
Shippensburg State Teachers College 29- 
22 at Shippensburg. The game was an 
interesting one from more than one an- 
gle. Shippensburg is the Valley coach, 
Miss Henderson's former alma mater, 
and then, too, Velma Gingrich, a former 
Lebanon Valley student, played with the 
Shippensburg team against her old 
mates. 

Jagnesak and Kreamer, the starting 
forwards, performed admirably to keep 
Lebanon Valley safely in the lead during 
the first half. Both successfully tried

Co-eds Prepare Poster 
For N. A. A. F. Publicity 

Large Sign Will Be Sent To St. 
Louis Convention. 



The National Amateur Athletic Fed- 
eration for women is on its way to rec- 
ognition and success in Lebanon Valley 
College. Under the instruction of Miss 
Henderson, sports for girls are making 
a name for themselves here on campus 
and off campus also. A new idea in pos- 
ters has been used in introducing the 
N. A. A. F. to the student body. Large 
letters two and a half feet high have 
been made on the back of oilcloth. In 
these letters are placed those objects 
which are symbolic of the N. A. A. F.'s 
platform. Brilliant colors and original 
designing characterize the poster letters. 
The four harmonize nicely, though each 
letter was made by a different person. 

In collaboration with Miss Henderson, 
Louise Stoner, chairman of the com- 
mittee, made the general plan for the 
posters. Each letter, however was de- 
signed, carried out in enlargement and 
painted by individuals. The N for Na- 
tional was done by Louise Stoner, the 
A for Amateur by Ruth Phenice, the 
A for Athletic by Sylva Harclerode, and 
the F for Federation by Iva Claire 
Weirick. The platform of the N. A. A. 
F. consists of twelve statements — three 
of which are taken up in each of the 
four letters. The N contains Universal 
Activities, Competition in Sports, and 
Interest in Awards. The A for Amateur 
embodies Suitable Costumes, Adequate 
Facilities, and Publicity. The A for 
Athletics includes Medical Examina- 
tions, Training of Women Leaders, and 
the Schedule. The F symbolizes Rules

Dellinger To Head 
1938 "Quittie" Staff 

SHAFFER NEW BUS. MGR. 



Sophomore Class Holds Meeting Prep- 
aratory to Producing 1938 Quittapa- 
hilla. 



At the last regular meeting the Sopho- 
more class elected Curwin Dellinger edit- 
or of next year's Quittie and Boyd 
Shaffer the business manager of the 
enterprise. 

Those in the know predict an excep- 
tionally successful year-book in '37 be- 
cause the editor has exceptional quali- 
fications, including quite a bit of ex- 
perience editing the annual publication 
of Red Lion High from which he 
graduated two years ago. Mr. Dellinger 
is also an honor student. 

Mr. Shaffer's qualifications are also 
numerous. Since he is at present oc- 
cupied in helping the national guard to 
relieve flood refugees at Sunbury where 
the possibility of scarlet fever contagion 
makes it possible that he will remain for 
quite a while, the news of his election 
to this office will come as a distinct sur- 
prise to him. 

In accordance with the usual custom, 
the new editor will appoint the rest of 
the editorial staff, and the business man- 
ager, the business staff. These appoint- 
ments have not yet been announced, but 
will be published as soon as notice is 
given our correspondent. 



POOL TOURNAMENT 



The annual pool tournament is draw- 
ing rapidly towards its annual close 
with Fridinger, Musser, Rozman, and 
Gordon Davies chalking their cues for 
the final eliminations which are expected 
to have taken place by the time this is- 
sue reaches the presses. 

As we write, Mr. Fridinger is the log- 
ical favorite to win the imaginary lov- 
ing cup, since he has played and smeared 
all opponents but his last, who will 
emerge from the remainder of the enum- 
erated group. The rest still have sev- 
eral elimination matches to play while 
Fridinger sits around speculating on 
who his last rival for supremacy will be. 



Delta Shamrock Dance 
Features Ira Bowman 



Rose Tschopp's Voice And Novel 
Dances Are Added Attractions. 



Delta Lambda Sigma held their sched- 
uled St. Patrick's dance on Saturday 
night in the gym. Ira Bowman furnished 
the syncopation. 

The gym was decorated to suit the oc- 
casion with green streamers, hats, and 
shamrocks. Ernestine Jagnesak ar- 
ranged the dances which included 4 
grand march, a shamrock dance, and a 
Paul Jones. Rose Tschopp sang Love 
Me Fwever and the rest of the enter- 
tainment was unplanned. The floor space 
was quite comfortable for the number of 
couples and the Delphians claim that the 
dance was one of the nicest ever held in 
the gym. Dr. and Mrs. Richie and Mrs. 
Green chaperoned the affair.

A Grain of Salt 



Now is the time for us to be careful in what we believe. We condemn one 
group and uphold another. War propaganda is cluttering up all of our current 
reading matter. One paper gives a sileefing account of Hitler's recent move. An- 
other may present the same situation from the opposite point of view. In too many 
cases our sympathies shift and lie parallel with any cleverly written report of a 
world event, especially if that report has an eye to moulding opinion about the 
event it describes. 

Without realizing it we are becoming war conscious. Not that we really want 
to go to war but rather we are gradually growing to consider with distaste some 
of the things going on in Europe. The poorly informed actually hate Hitler and 
Mussolini for their apparently war-like and aggressive actions and attitudes. Not 
that these two perverts are to be regarded with love and favor, but the argument is 
that many of us carry our hatred almost to the point of a desire for war with 
either or both. It is granted that both of these men's ambitions carry them to 
actions that are dangerous to world peace. Maybe they have thrown the world 
back toward the primitive in its development of international law, maybe. Give 
the world peace machinery a chance to work before we pass any judgments. Look 
at the other side too. Don't be blinded by propaganda. How many can think of 
the Versailles Treaty in this light? ". . . it is no longer the cornerstone of Europ- 
ean diplomatic policy; it has become the gravestone of German submission." 
That is Hitler's idea of the Versailles Treaty. Perhaps it makes our blood boil to 
realize that it is considered thus. But take it easy. Don't get "mad" at Germany 
because of their strong nationalistic feelings. They don't want war any more than 
we do, nor do any group of people in Europe want war. 

The world today has machinery to prevent war as well as make it. Give this 
machinery a chance to work before we get all heated up about the war problem. 
And take a grain of salt with any thing you may read on current events. Be on 
the lookout lor propaganda and treat it accordingly. We don't want war !

The Poet f s Corner 



By 

A. KALOCUTUP 



Old Sherlock Holmes was here today, 
With cap, and pipe, and glass — 
He's indicated lots of things 
To shortly come to pass. 

He's prophesied a lot of facts 
About the Kalo dance — 
He's got some clues and evidence 
Assembled in advance. 

Listen, my children, and you shall hear 
The deep-down dope on Kalos queer. 
Here's who's going to the big, bad dance 
In the swishing gowns and Tuxedo pants. 
Hold your breath for a big surprise, 
Here's low-down stuff that'll open your 
eyes. 

* * * * 

Now, first a few small "prosey" tips, 

And then to the Muse we hie, 

And should you say, "Now, who wrote 

this?" 
Ah, no ! It wasn't I. 

* * * * 

Probable Linev/p 
Gibble — "Immy" Immler (Immyagine 
that). 

Smelser — Evelyn Mae (from the Leba- 
non Hinterland). 

H. Gruber — Pat Kreider (private school 
stuff). 

Musser — Meinhardt(yeh, Amy). 
Shenk — a Miss Hain. 
Dick — either Helen or Anna. 
Luther — either Anna or Helen. 

v * * * 
Peg Holbrook and her Andy boy 
At such occasions never balk, 
So they'll be there as usual — yeah! 
With all their baby talk.

Blithering Balderdash 



By Xenophon, the Stooge 



One serious young man, another of 
these chaps with his feet on the ground 
probably, wants to know, since we fore- 
swear useful information, what good are 
we? We recommend for this unfor- 
tunate victim of ours that he discontinue 
the time-wasting process of perusing our 
weekly salaam to the insignificant, and 
substitute instead a few pages from 
E. A. Barton's How to Build a Lawn- 
Mower with Materials Found in any 
Home, containing complete blueprints 
and directions or R. T. Gordon's epochal 
tome on the Technique of Selling the 
Mickle-Plated Shoe-Buckler by Mail. Or 
if he is really interested in practical 
pointers we have a large copy of Web- 
ster which was nigh unto indispensable 
to us until we grew tall enough to sit 
at the dinner table without it. 



We are also admonished that our Htti e 
flight of fancy concerning the method oi 
breathing employed while sleeping by 
certain ladies of our acquaintance show 
a hitherto unsuspected degree of ignor- 
ance on our part; since, the letter de- 
clares, very few ladies are given to snor- 
ing. It concludes, "I'll bet you can't 
name a dozen women you've heard snor- 
ing. Science demands definite proof." 

Some time ago Prof. Struble, who is 
not above a bit of whimsy, assigned to 
the more or less maive persons who take 
English 16 the task of writing a theme 
on the general subject of "Women". A 
few weeks later numerous Frosh, as- 
tounded by the low grade given, beefed 
to us so long that we decided to in- 
vestigate. And so, gathering up our 
Sherlock hat and our deductions we 
traipsed forth to discover that which 
was what. 

* * * * 

We exhumed from the library the 
English assistant who had done 'L- 
foul deed and brought him out into 
daylight where we discovered he was 
none other than Mr. Calvin Reber. 
Drawing on his vast store of knowledge 
for a comparison wherewith to mark the 
famous essays on women, he frowned 
darkly as he took his blue pencil in hand 
and said, "These Freshmen don't know 
anything about women. I marked em 
low."

Student Themes 



ARGUING POLITICS 

1 am a yes-man. 

This is a matter of circumstances ra- 
ther than of disposition; it is carrying 
the Adamic curse to its logical implica- 
tions inasmuch as earning our daily 
bread involves doing what we are told 
to do. If one is married and works for 
a living he must say "yes" to his boss, 
the superintendent, the board of direc- 
tors, the general public, and to the wife. 

I am— and who isn't?— a yes-man by- 
profession. 

But when out of character, I delight 
in throwing diplomacy to the winds and 
dissenting vigorously and impolitely. It 
is my pleasure then to shout a rude and 
raucous "no", to pound the table, and, 
if the occasion seems to call for it, to 
wag a forensic forefinger under an ob- 
stinate nose. I believe this to be the 
ideal way to check up on the quality and 
edge of my temper and to make sure 
that my soul is still my own. 

This being the purpose, it is quite 
clear that the subject is of secondary 
importance; one may dispute anything 
from the identity of the red-headed girl 
in the next block to the substance of the 
spirit with equal gusto and perhaps equal 
profit. But few questions are so rich in 
provocative material or so full of sharp- 
ly drawn and and wrath-provoking is- 
sues as politics. Hence it is the ideal 
topic for your chronic objector. 

I much prefer not to throw down the 
gage too early, but rather to let the se- 
lected adversary amble well along the 
conversational pathway. There is the 
psychological moment when one may lift 
an irritating eyebrow and interpolate a 
perverse question. There is the proper 
shade of disdain expressing utter dis- 
agreement which usually brings prompt 
and sometimes tumultuous results. From 
this point sound lungs count for more 
than sound logic, and the relative num- 
ber of words per minute will very likely 
decide the issue— if one is interested in 
the issue. 

It is true that faulty appraisal of 
human nature may necessitate a good 
defence technique or a pair of fleet legs; 
nunc than one disputant has turned belli- 
cose when words failed to convince. Sur- 
prises may always be expected. One 
time, hungry for hard words, I settled 
upon a brawny, hard-headed yeoman 
whom 1 judged to be of properly grained 
and seasoned timber for a gusty political 
brawl. After inveigling him with soft 
speech into making an unsound declara- 
tion, 1 closed with him. 1 asserted the 
contrary with arrogance and emphasis; 
I pointed out, with insulting disregard 
for his principles, the utter asininity of 
the proposition he set forth, even hint- 
ing indelicately at want of normal wit. 
After digesting this idea for a space he 
smote his denim knee with a thwack: 
"Dang it." he cried, "you're right!" 

By and large, 1 recommend this as a 
tonic for jaded wits; but 1 dare not 
pass it on without a word of caution. 
If the dispute concern itself with politic 
or prunes, and if the disputant is a lady 
and your wife, there is only one for- 
mula—one thing to say;! it is the old 
tried and true "yes, dear." 

— By Clayton P. Boycr. 



an academic and theoretical significance. 
It is not a word whose meaning they 
know from experience. Studying is done 
only by those people who are already 
quite insane or by some poor fellow who 
may have fantastical dreams of some 
day becoming famous like Lincoln, 
Washington, Edison, or Rockefeller. 

Studying is a disease which is rarely 
found among upperclassmen. Fresh- 
men are very susceptible ; but they, most 
of them, outgrow it during their first 
year. If the student happens to be un- 
fortunate, he may have to pretend to 
study in order to earn his way through 
college. 

A pie-medical student made the fol- 
lowing remark in the day students' 
room: "I pay the college two hundred 
and fifty dollars a year for the privilege 
of coming here to sleep in their chairs 
and on their tables while I could sleep 
much more comfortably at home in a 
bed for nothing." When one surveys 
some lecture rooms, he finds that the 
above statement is not altogether an ex- 
aggeration. 

When I first came to college, I started 
to question a football player about how 
he spends his time. He seemed to have 
so much to do ; and, when 1 asked him 
when he studied, he looked at me in 
amazement, smiled, and patted me on 
the back. "Sonny you don't study," he 
said simply. 

Conscientious people are to be found 
everywhere. In college, this species will 
usually be seen making a valiant attempt 
to redeem itself by taking notes, prepar- 
ing the assignment, or reading the les- 
son during the lecture period. 

If anyone has enough initiative to look 
up the word study in the Webster Dic- 
tionary, he will find the following mean- 
ing : "to apply the mind to." It may 
then be said that many of the day stu- 
dents study bridge. At least they apply 
their time to it. One can rarely walk 
into their room without finding about 
three tables occupied by bridge addicts. 

Dances and other social events precede 
study in the minds of many of our stu- 



dents. I know one person who has not 
missed one dance, hop, prom, party, 
hike, or banquet this year and not once 
did he have his lesson prepared the next 
day either. 

A short time ago I asked a student 
what his attitude toward study was. He 
said, "I think it is a big mistake." 

The girls who are unable to attract the 
opposite sex and become socially popular 
thereby are often found among the num- 
ber who only should be called students. 

By sleeping in classrooms, after all of 
the cuts have been taken, attending social 
affairs, playing bridge, and partaking in 
a few other pastimes, the so-called stu- 
dents spend all of their time, and they 
cannot possibly find time to be bored by 
study. 

— By Ernest A. Snyder, '39. 



ALUMNI NEWS 



WHAT DOES THE NEWSPAPER 
EXPECT FROM THE SMALL 
COLLEGE ? 

No greater service could be rendered 
newspapers by small colleges than to 
give their students intensive training in 
writing English, Rufus R. Ness, Asst. 
Business Manager of the Elizabeth Daily 
Journal, declared in an address recently 
at a dinner meeting of the graduates 
and former students of Lebanon Valley 
College held in the ballroom of the Town 
Hall Club, 123 West 43rd Street, New 
York City. 

Although it is axiomatic that ability to 
write English correctly is a primary re- 
quisite for reporters, the truth is that 
many reporters, including some with col- 
lege degrees, write sloppy English, Mr. 
Ness declared. One of the principal du- 
ties of the newspaper copy desk is to 
put into proper form badly-written text 
submitted by reporters. Much time and 
expense would be saved newspapers if 
all writers used clear, concise English, 
he said, and continued: 

"Students should be urged to get the 



dictionary habit; to increase their voca- 
bularies and to learn to distinguish be- 
tween the different shades of meaning 
conveyed by similar words. They should 
be well grounded in the principals of 
grammar, and of sentence and paragraph 
structure, so that there may be unity and 
continuity of thought. They should be 
taught the writings of men and women 
known for their excellent work in differ- 
ent types of literary and journalistic 
composition, with a view to developing 
good style of their own. 

"Courses are provided in most colleges 
along these lines, but, judging from some 
of the results, students often are not 
given enough practical work to fit them 
for the test of actual conditions. Practice 
makes perfect here as well as in other 
fields. An additional class in English, 
designed to 'consolidate the gains from 
other courses, and give more time for 
critical writing, might be of help. 

"This subject is stressed because of 
its importance to prospective newspaper 
workers and the papers which they are 
to serve. 

"Clear thinking and ability to arrange 
one's material effectively also are requis- 
ites for prospective newspaper men and 
women. Small colleges can serve news- 
papers well by greater stress on these 
factors in all their regular courses. 

"Whether a college has specific jour- 
nalism courses or not, it can give distin- 
gmshed service to newspapers by inten- 
sive drilling of students in the basic 
work cited. Its courses in literature, 
history, economics, finance, Bible, and 
the sciences are most valuable for back- 
ground purposes. 

"These and many other fundamental 
journalistic principals can be taught by 
small colleges to the mutual advantage 
of prospective newspaper workers and 
the organizations which they will serve. 
But do not forget to lay a good founda 
tion by thorough training in written Eng- 
lish."

THE GREEN BLOTTER 
CLUB 



ROCKED IN THE CRADLE OF THE 
SHEEP 



Last night I thought I'd hit the hay, 
To rest my bones from yesterday. 
And thought perhaps that 1 could sleep, 
With soothing slumber, soft and deep. 
So 1 removed my coat and vest — 
My shirt, and sucks, and all the rest 
That 1 must shed to be undressed, 
And hied myself to bed. 
But as 1 lay there in a heap 
I found 1 couldn't go to sleep, 
And so 1 started counting sheep, 
And this is what 1 said: 

"One sheep, two sheep, three sheep, four; 
llow'd they come in — through the door? 
Five sheep, six sheep, — golly day — 
Where'd they come from, anyway? 
Seven sheep, eight sheep, nine sheep, ten ; 
What do they think this is — their pen? 
They stand around and stare at me. 
Am I a curiosity?" 

They all maintained a perfect poise, 
And didn't make a bit of noise. 
They thought they were polite! 
They came and sniffed my pillow case, 
And chewed my hair, and licked my face, 
And took possession of the place, 
Throughout the live-long night! 

At five o'clock this morning, 

Without a word of warning, 

They started to disperse. 

They took their leave so sweetly, 

So calmly and so neatly, 

That I must tell you all about it 

In this simple verse. 

They climbed upon my window sill, 
And out they all did jump. 
I could not see them hit the ground, 
But heard the wooly bump ! 

What they did next I'm not quite sure, 
At least they didn't stay. 
'Cause o'er the campus I could hear 
Them scooting far away. 

Ah what relief! I tossed with joy! 
And tumbled out upon the floor ! 
Then I woke up, and never felt 
So sheepish in my life before.

Hotel Hershey ; Large Attendance 

xhe annual Kalo Dinner-dance last

* York, Ohio, New England, West- 
6 p en nsylvania, and points south 

Uped to swell a record attendance at 

Jhat pr° ved t0 be the high Sp0t in 
folozetean social functions, if not of the 

Arriving at about 7 :00 o clock at Her- 
shey 's really palatial hotel set high on a 
rolling hill overlooking the town of Her- 
shey, guests were escorted into the huge 
lobby and lounge built to resemble the 
courtyard of a Spanish mansion with 
what seemed to be the blue evening sky 
above, a refreshing fountain in the cen- 
ter, canaries singing, and truly gorgeous 
tapestries and appointments abounding. 

After some of the mysteries of the 
lounges had been investigated and most 
of the guests had arrived, the party 
moved into the semi-circular soft-lighted 
dinir.g room to partake of a delicious 
meal with service par excellence. Tables 
were arranged for parties of four, six, 
and eight, so that an air of intimacy was 
preserved along with the elegance. Fa- 
vors consisted of small silver mesh even- 
ing hand bags. Muted dinner music 
drifted through the palms to the ban- 
queter's ear; beautiful bouquets decked 
each table. 

After dinner, the Harrisonians soon 
filled the ballroom above with entranc- 
ing music and happy dancers. Kalo had 
engaged all the lounge facilities adjacent 
to the ballroom and in spite of the size 
of the party freedom of movement was 
assured for all. Every possible service 
for the comfort of the party was pro- 
dded and many more alumni friends and 
Kalos than had been predicted were in 
attendance. 

After three hours of dancing to the 
er est of dance arrangements and of 
m ost enjoyable good-fellowship, the 
Par ty ended with everyone having a 
w ord of praise for Paul Hershey, Anni- 
versary President, and his committees 
a most successful and "the best

Stephen Deak, Cellist 
To Play Here April 16 

WILL BE L. V. C. TEACHER 



Noted Artist, Pupil of Popper to 
Appear at Conservatory. 



Thursday evening, April 16, music 
lovers of the college and surrounding 
communities will have the privilege of 
hearing Stephen Deak, world-famed 
Violincellist, in Engle Hall. It is with- 
out a doubt a privilege to have such an 
accomplished musician here at Lebanon 
Valley and especially so when we know 
he is coming here next year to teach 
Violincello in the Conservatory. 

He has had vast musical training 
which began at tne age of seven, when 
he studied under the instruction of the 
ereat 'cellist and composer, David Pop- 
per, "whose favorite pupil he remained 
until the master's death." 

"After his graduation from the. Royal 
Academy of Music, in Budapest, he was 
acclaimed as an outstanding 'cellist 
through his recitals in Austria, Hungary 
and Switzerland. 

'At seventeen, he served in the Hun- 
garian Army, in which he remained for 
five years. After the war he came to 
America, and under the guidance of 
Felix Salmond, the famous English 
'cellist, began to reconstruct the damages 
in his art caused by the war. Later he 
became a member of the Philadelphia

Life Work Recruits 

Send Out Deputations 

Conduct Services in Many Nearby 
Churches. 



The Life Work Recruits sent out sev- 
eral deputations this week. A group of 
members motored to Glenmore, Pa., to 
conduct a service in the Methodist 
Church, of which Rev. C. P. Boyer is 
pastor. Included in the program was 
a musical number by Greta Heiland, de- 
votions by Audrie "Pox, a sermon by Cal- 
vin Reber, with Thomas Guinivan pre- 
siding. 

Another group presented the evening 
worship service in the West Fairview V. 
B. Church, with Mark Hostetter :is 
speaker, and musical numbers by Doro- 
thy Yeakel, Dorothy Zeiters, Irene 
Ranck, Virginia Niessner and Ruth 
Geyer. 

The Recruits were represented in 
the Campbelltown U. B. Church by Lou- 
is Strauh as speaker. Mildred Gangwer 
and Edith Metzgar gave musical selec- 
tions and Duey Unger presented the de- 
votions. Rev. Ezra Ranck, the pastor, is 
an alumnus of L. V. C. 

A musical program was presented by 
the L. W. R. and music students in the 
Ono U. B. Church, of which Rev. Uhler 
is pastor. Special selections included 
those of Donald Worley, Esther Flom, 
Arlene Hoffman, voice; John Zettlemoy- 
er, violin; Virginia Summers, organ; and 
Rita Mosher, piano and accompaniment. 
Daniel Shearer, with Sarah Lupton pre- 
siding, gave the devotions. 

Ethel Houtz made an address to the 
young people in their regular meeting in 
the college church. 



L-CLUB DANCE 

Saturday evening, April 18, an 
open dance will be held in the gym 
and in Phlld Hall to introduce for- 
mally the coveted new L-Club sweat- 
ers and the 22 varsity men receiving 
them. The L-Clubers will wear their 
sweaters to the dance, while regular 
attire will be the order for other 
guests. 

Dancing will begin at 8:15, and 
there will be cards for those not 
dancing. Either Jimmy DeAngelis or 
Jack Dress will furnish the music 
with loud speakers and novelty num- 
bers assuring enjoyment for all. Tick- 
ets are now on sale for the dance, 
while the dance programs will be dis- 
tributed at the door upon admission. 
The L-Club extends a special invita- 
tion to alumni members of the club

will help to defray the expense of the 
new sweaters. 



Plans Get Under Way 
For May Day Pageant 

OLYMPICS FURNISH THEME 



Committees Active, Costumes Are 
Being Made As Practices Begin. 



Plans for the annual May Day are be- 
ing made and carried out in a furious 
manner. With Professor Stokes and 
Mr. Clements in charge of publicity, in- 
dividual pictures of the members of the 
court are appearing in local and home 
newspapers. 

Miss Henderson and Mr. Metoxen are 
holding strenuous workouts and class 
practices for both solo and group dances. 
Sample costumes are being made by the 
various members of the costume com- 
mittee, and the material for each cos- 
tume will be distributed at North Hall 
Monday and Tuesday. Arrangements 
are being made for the selling of re- 
freshments. 

This year the May Day festival will 
be an international festival representing 
a number of leading countries through 
their characteristic dances. The theme 
chosen is the Olympics since this is th<j 
Olympic year. All the dances are being 
taught by the school physical education 
instructors. There will be special music 
at the festival under the direction of 
Professor Rutledge, with both Men's 
and Co-ed's Bands, it is rumored. 

A last minute note — new streamers are 
being bought for the Maypole. They will 
be of one length and at least ten yards

Theo. Loose Opens 

I. R. C. Discussion 



The International Relations Club met 
on Tuesday, Mar. 24, at the home of Dr. 
Stevenson. The usual open forum proce- 
dure was followed. Theodore Loose in- 
troduced the topic for the discussion; 
he spoke to the club on the League of 
Nations, and the work it has done. The 
dub held a general discussion for the 
remainder of the evening. Plans for a 
final out-door meeting were suggested. 



YOU AND I-COMEDY OF MANNERS 
WELL RECEIVED BY GALA AUDIENCE 



MORRISON, TIL FORD 
IMPRESSIVE IN 
BARRY PLAY 



Student Review 



Last Friday eve we were saved from 
commemorating "Be- Bored-by-Balzac 
Week" only by the timely advent of the 
ed.-ir.-chief who blustered in with a 
phiz-ful of worried looks — and all be- 
cause no one had been assigned to swing 
the critical axe at Kalo and Delphian, 
who, he alleged, were going to do a bit 
of histrionic hazing upon Philip Barry, 
who wrote You and I. We agreed to 
analyze the antics of the evening, and 
accordingly ambled over to the Conserve 
a bit late for curtain-rise. 

After the usual difficulty with the man 
who wants to see, obstinate creature, just 
at the moment when one is counting five 
in from the aisle, we took a squint at the 
stage and were forthwith amazed to dis- 
cover Ella Mason and Wilbur Leech do- 
ing something thereon to the drama. 
Just what the operation they were per- 
forming was, we could not tell from our 
seat, but it appeared to be a cross be- 
tween an autopsy and sausage grinding. 

Just as we had reached the saturation 
point on this little excursion through 
quaint old Hamburg, however, Barry 
fell into a merciful mood and sent Anna 
Morrison upon the scene of carnage, 
thus teaching us not to suck on our 
fountain pen, which — such was our rap- 
ture — we almost swallowed immediately 
she stood on the stage. 

The public will witness that it is not 
our custom to say it with flowers. Prose 
poesies are as boring as they are un- 
critical, we maintain. Never-the-less we 
intend to like Nancy White, whom Miss 
Morrison portrayed, right out here in

Astor Movies Benefit 
Clionian This Week 



Crosby Musical and McLaglen Fea- 
ture on Local Stage. 



Clio is sponsoring two excellent mo- 
vies this week, one of which should 
prove interesting to any student on the 
campus who likes the screen. Wednes- 
day and Thursday nights Bing Crosby 
and Ethel Merman in Anything Goes 
will entertain all those who like that end- 
less variety of musical comedies. With 
two outstanding singers and a group of 
original song and dance members, this 
show promises to be very enjoyable. 

On Friday night and Saturday after- 
noon (Matinee at 2:30 P. M.) Victor 
McLaglen and Freddie Bartholomew will 
be shown in Professional Soldier. The 
plot is reported to be good. Very little 
need be said in addition to the statement 
that Victor McLaglen won the renown 
of having done the best piece of acting 
for 1935 in his role in The Informer, 
while young Master Bartholomew is 
perhaps the most outstanding actor on 
the screen today at his age. 

Tickets may be bought from any 
Clionian for twenty-five cents, tax ex- 
empt. 



STRUBLE OFFERING 
CAPABLY ACTED, 
WELL-PACED. 



By Miss Margaret Wood 



The Kalozetean and Delphian Societies 
presented Philip Barry's comedy You 
and I to a very appreciative audience 
last Friday evening. Under the capable 
direction of Dr. Struble, the players 
made the most of what might be called 
a not too brilliant three act comedy. 

Briefly, the central theme hangs upon 
the choice forced upon many indivi- 
duals ; to wit, a cherished career versus 
matrimony, with the essential element of 
inadequate income for the successful 
pursuit of both. The comedy element is 
developed largely through the naive and 
amusing servant who plays a make-be- 
lieve game of being a "real lady." Mr. 
Barry made use of light persiflage and 
sophisticated dialogue typical of a come- 
dy of manners for his treatment of the 
theme. There are no high spots of sus- 
pense, and the curtain falls at the end of 
each act with little dramatic effect. 

So much for the play itself. The 
players merit considerable praise for 
their interpretations of their parts. As 
the sympathetic and very charming wife 
of the thwarted artist, Miss Anna Mor- 
rison showed excellent acting ability. 
Her gestures were few, extremely well 
done, and quite effective, and her lines 
were delivered in a pleasing and mature 
voice. Mr. Robert Spohn gave a very 
creditable interpretation of a man forced 
by circumstances into business when his 
desires and ambitions cried aloud for 
art. Mr. Spohn gave evidence of versa- 
tility and good stage presence in this as 
well as in other plays given on the cam- 
pus. 

Miss Ella Mason and Mr. Wilbur Leech 
successfully portrayed the young lovers 
of the play. As Veronica Duane, Miss 
Mason was a convincing young idealist, 
capable of sacrificing her love upon the 
altar of her lover's ambition. Mr. Leech 
left the audience in no doubt as to his 
youthful fervor for the lady of his 
choice, involving, as it did, the renuncia- 
tion of his career as an architect. Per- 
haps the high spot of their roles was at- 
tained in the short scene when, close to 
the footlights, sitting back to back on the 
floor of the stage, they presented an im- 
pression of really living their parts,

Recreation Hour 



Lebanon Valley's first recreation 
hour was held in the gym Tuesday 
evening with about 60 students and 
Mrs. Green, Mr. Carmean, and Dr. 
Schweigert attending. There was 
dancing to victrola and radio music, 
and cards for those who cared to 
play. Most everyone seemed to be 
having a good time. 

The recreation hour will be held 
twice a week, on Tuesday and Thurs- 
day, and will be sponsored by the 
four literary societies. Possible means 
of improvement are being discussed 
with the hints of new wall lights and 
fixtures and possibly a new radio as 
the most prominent suggestions.

Morrison, Tilford Impressive 
In Barry Play 

(Continued From Page i) 

front of every one for the rest of this 
paragraph, let skip it who will." 

Even her entrance takes all the ad- 
jectives out of us. She did not walk onto 
the set; it was rather a glissade, the 
suavity and the smoothness of which 
renders Mint Julep made by a Kentucky 
colonel a most vapid basis for compari- 
son. And her acting— one forgot en- 
tirely that it was acting, so completely 
did she transcend herself. With such 
ephemeral materials as a voice^one of 
striking beauty, incidentally— and tech- 
nique she positively created her role. So 
complete was her witchery that on get- 
ting home, we found our program 
covered with notations like "Morrison 
turning off a light" and "Morrison ter- 
rifically beautiful in . . . (MS. indis- 



tinguishable)" Whether any one agrees 
with us or not, we venture the opinion 
that, without her, the piece would have 
been a fizzle to end all fizzles and the 
devil take the hindmost, who is, in this 
case Mr. Leech. 

Also, despite our misogynistic tender 
cies, we are enough of a connoisseur of 
the erotic sort of thing to feel safe in 
advising that a fervent embrace does not 
consist of three mechanical movements 
of the body in the direction of the vic- 
tim — not even in the movies. 

Contrasted with Mr. Leech, Bob 
Spohn was good. Considered more cri- 
tically however, the breath of the great 
outdoors and such places which ema- 
nates from his rather virile-looking six 
feet of height and the hearty boom of 
his voice seem somewhat incongruous 
when confined to a tuxedo. It was, how- 
ever, this very quality that made him 
highly convincing in the second act 
wherein he had reverted to art. His 
metier is really character parts, a num- 
ber of which he has played with notable 
success in the past. These, unfortunate- 
ly, seem to have given him a technique, 
which, though highly competent in most 
respects, is not quite adaptable to the 
tea-cup balancing roles. 

He would do well to leave such sissi- 
fied affairs to Bob Tilford, who, as 
Geoffrey Nichols, a pot-boiling author 
dashed into the first act just in time to 
save it from dying on its feet. Mr. Til- 
ford is also a character man, but of a 
different type from Mr. Spohn. He does 
a really superlative ass, though for us to 
say why would be something of an il- 
legitimate stretching of our critical pre- 
rogative ; his roues and his sophisticates, 
as well as his dignified old codgers also 
possess a great deal of verisimilitude. 
Perhaps the chap is really a good actor, 
for all one knows. 

But to confine ourselves to present 
cases, we must chide him for appearing 
in the second act as a straight man. At 
the same time he retained the diction of 
Nichols and created a simply ungodly 
combination by way of a result. In all 
other respects we hereby give him per- 
mission to consider himself delightful. 
There is just one more laurel-wreath 
left, and so, while we are in the busi- 
ness of distributing the things, we may 



just as well give it to June Gingrich — 
or crown her with it — or whatever one 
does do with laurel wreaths. As Etta, 
the maid who made good she mopped up 
the house, so to speak, with us. Such 
good acting in such desolate surround- 
ings is quite a shock. 

It is really too bad that the laurels are 
all gone, or we might have given one to 
Mr. Messersmith. As G. T. Warren, 
self-made man, he played with a gusto 
that amused us quite frequently. And of 
course it's probably just the simian in us, 
that is too stupid to figure out whether 
the cigars messed up his diction, or the 
diction got in the way of his cigars. Mr. 
Messersmith, we are told, was not one 
of those infants tcrribles who used to 
sneak an occasional drag behind the 
barn or wherever it is that boys are 
traditionally supposed to acquire the to- 
bacco habit. He therefore had to be- 
come a devotee of the weed overnight, 
almost, to play his role, with the result 
that he fumes rather than smokes. We 
became nervous watching his cigars 
which, miraculously, did not go off. 

At this point it is customary for the 
reviewer to reach for his bucket of 
vegetables and call loudly for the author. 
We had thought to let Mr. Barry es- 
cape unscathed, because his play has 
such verve, but he went and spoiled mat- 
ters by taking the Warren mannerisms 
directly from the catalogue of theatrical 
stereotypes. There are self-made men, 
and self made-men, and many and vari- 
ous are their characteristics, but it is 
considered unethical, apparently, to allow 
any but the most vulgar to crop out in 
the self-made man in one's own piece. He 
must always be a tough old gazaboo who 
smokes, drinks, swears, and gambles at 
every opportunity, but who, despite an 
essential grossness, really has a certain 
anatomical phenomenon called a heart of 
gold, and herein Mr. Barry falls with 
his fellows into the drink. Aside from 
this really rather insignificant defect, 
and a slight tendency toward sententious- 
ness, there is little that may be blamed 
upon him. 

That leaves none but Ella Mason, on 
whom we have not yet picked, to 
shoulder the responsibility for the rest 
of the goings-on. As Ronnie, young 
thing with a half turn to the unusual, 
she strove valiantly, but ineffectually 
against insuperable difficulties, of which 
the largest was the magnificent support 
which she failed to receive from Mr.! 
Leech. Also, the role was much too big; 
for one of her somewhat sylph-like pro- 
portions. But even so, she had her 
moments. 

We have not attempted to view the 
play as a whole for the absurdly ele- 
mentary reason that, as presented, it was' 
not a whole. It jolted along, picking its 
pace at random, with a most tyrannical 
disregard for audience reaction, as if 
oblivious to the fact that the people be- 
hind us were holding an earnest discus- 
sion on the relative advantages of string 
beans and potato chips as components of. 
a light repast. Then too, Miss Morri- 
son and Mr. Tilford would have done 
better to throw the rest of the cast 
down the cellar steps rather than to 
carry them gallantly as they did uponi 
their own broad— theatrically speaking: 
—shoulders. Without these two minister- 
ing angels and the occasional help which 
they received from a few of the others, 
the play would have died an early, but 
merciful death. With them, it was un- 
satisactory from the critical point of 
view, but they were on stage enough of 
the time to keep the audience fairly 
contented so that all ended happily 



ALUMNI NEWS 



From the Sierra Leone Outlook, West 
Africa, comes the following clipping; 

"Some years ago, -when the Students' 
Friendship Project of the youths of 
America sent a lady missionary to the 
Harford School at Moyamba, we, the 
Academicians, felt a bit unpleasant be- 
cause we thought that the youths of 
America only cared for the friendship 
of the Harford girls. This feeling con- 
tinued until about the middle of last 
year when the air was filled with the 
rumor that a young man was coming for 
the Academy. Most of us did not be- 
lieve it, because we had given up all 
hope and had concluded that the project 
cared only for the friendship of the Har- 
ford girls. To strengthen our lack of 
faith in the news, the first boat that was 
supposed to bring our friend anchored 
in the harbor without him. But, at last, 
on the evening of the 25th of .January, 
Rev. Chester O. Goodman, from Bone- 
brake Seminary, landed in Sierra Leone. 

"That the Students' Friendship Proj- 
ect cares for our friendship too is now 
indisputable. We, the boys, are so much 
loved by our friends in America that 
they have not only sent us an ordinary 
man, but a "GOODMAN." In his first 
address to the school he said, 'I have 
come with the friendship of the youths 
of America with real faith in the Afri- 
can Youth. On board the ship there were 
some people who did not have faith in 
you and wanted to shake my own faith, 
too, but it has not been shaken and 1 
hope it will not.' We welcome Rev. Good- 
man in our midst, and as he comes, to 
act as a loudspeaker between us and our 
American friends, we hope he will have 
good impressions to take back when it is 
time for him to return." 

"For Christ and our King stand we ever, 

We're loyal to them to the end. 
Our lives for their service give we ever, 
O may we be worthy to send."

Vic Fridinger Crowned 
Campus Pool Champion 

Eliminates Gordon Davies In Final 
Round Play. 



Meet the chain]), folks! Victor Fri- 
dinger is the name and he is champion 
of the pool table in the Men's Dorm, 
having earned the reigning position by 
withstanding a long series of elimina- 
tion rounds which culminated in his de- 
feating Gordon Davies, the runner-up, 
by the score of 100 to 69 last Thursday 
afternoon. 

The final play-off was not closely con- 
tested at any point, since Vic maintained 
his early lead and at no time allowed 
his opponents to cut it down. When the 
first half of the frame was finished the 
score, was 50-31, with Fridinger owning 
the fifty balls. 

The game, which brought together the 
finalists, was played rather consistently: 
both: players shot a steady game with 
Fridinger' making runs oftener than Da- 
vies. 

Fridinger earned the right to play in 
the finals when he defeated Holtzman, 
and Davies by defeating Musser, fresh- 
man claimant. 1 

A large number of fans witnessed the 
game, most of them shooters who had 
suffered elimination in the tournament 
and now desired to challenge the victor, 
so that many consultation matches are 
now being played. Vic's the champ— his 
name is Victor. 



mately nothing to discuss. What would

Jay E. House used to claim that when 
'he wanted to know anything, he had only 
!to ask his readers. We should personally 
like to know who invented the typewrit- 
er. Manuscript, however, should be ac- 
companied by a self-addressed and 
stamped envelope.'

ence of .tracing words to their original 
sources and meaninas. And if anyone

All 



which leaves us with approxi- 



,-ather than acting them. 

Ett<t, the servant., would have had no 
better agent for her delineation than 
;Miss June Gingrich, who gave a delight- 
ful interpretation of the role. A shade 
too much Of acting would 'have -spoiled 
the effect of the play, but Miss Gingrich 
gave a delightul touch of naivete and 
demureness to the part. This rather 
minor role managed to carry off the 
major honors of the performance. 

As the sophisticated friend of the fa- 
mily, and a successful writer and care- 
free bachelor, Mr. Til ford seemed quire 
at .ease on the stage, and gave a fine 
performance throughout the play. 

The hearty, self-satisfied, and bluff 
business man, Mr. G. T. Warren, was 
played by Mr. Edgar Messersmith. Mak- 
ing use of the inevitable cigar and tin- 
trick of hitching his thumbs inside his 
vest, Mr. M cssersmith made a convinc- 
; ng and self-satisfied soap manufacturer. 
Like the servant's role, this part offered 
opportunities for over-playing, but just 
the right shade of jovial matter-o-f-fact- 
ness made Mr. Messerstnith's interpreta- 
tion of his role consistent with the por- 
trayal intended by the playwright. 

While the players are to be congra- 
tulated warmly for their success fr.l 



Y. W. CONDUCTS CHAPEL 



The monthly Y. W. C. A. chapel 
program was planned last week by 
Agnes Morris, the new program 
chairman. Claire Adams opened with 
a script urc reading and prayer, aftei 
whic h Eleanor Hceder sang Open tht 
Gates <>f the Tfni/>le, accompanied bj 
Robert Heckmah at the organ. Au- 
drie Fox spoke of life as an adven- 
ture. She presented an inspirational 
talk directly to the students, chal- 
lenging them to make the most of 
thiT exciting adventure day by day. 
One of her number of thought-pro- 
voking sentences was this: "We art 
ambassadors as Christians betweer. 
Christ and the people whom we con- 
tact. However, we must first be true 
followers of Christ ourselves." 



presentation of You and I, no little 
credit is due to the students who aided 
in the production by taking care of the 
stage settings and properties. It is no 
easy matter to change our stage into a 
convincing attic, yet so skillfully was 
this feat performed that those responsi- 
ble' for the transformation are to be 
highly complimented for their work. 
Mr. Harold Phillips was unusually suc- 
cessful in his stage settings, using few 
properties most effectively. For the dif- 
ficult task of collecting and returning 
the borrowed articles of furniture, 3yli\ 
Allen Rutherford and Mr. Edward 
Schmidt merit the appreciation of both 
the cast and the audience. 

In contrast to Sir James Barrie's Ad- 
mirable Crichton, Philip Barry's You 
and I was considerably easier to see on 
the stage than to read. Dr. Struble in 
his direction of the play, gave it a vita- 
lity which is missing on the printed 
page. To the director and to those who 
gave their time and effort for a success- 
ful production is due the warm appre- 
ciation of the audience for an evening 
of delightful entertainment. 



Frosb Ferns Initiated 
A La Poisson D'Avril 



Galoshes, Umbrellas, Upperclass, etc. 
Cajse Much Inconvenience. 



On April Fool's Day, at 7:30 P. M., a 
dejected crew of Freshmen girls, clad in 
gym suits and galoshes, and carrying 
umbrella*, marched to the alumni gym- 
nasium. There they were greeted by an 
eager group of upperclassmen who "fed 
to" with a vengeance. Each girl was 
hlindfoldid with a large handkerchief 
which sht had unwittingly provided. Her 
arms and. legs were tied and she was 
made to wriggle across the gym floor. 
The next ordeal was the difficult task of 
maneuvering a peanut across the room 
with a ii)se as the only means of pro- 
pulsion. Corn flakes were spread over 
the place and every girl was forced to 
walk on hem. Her hands were dipped 
in molasses and then corn flakes. Gooey ! 
The gym was measured with a match 
stick, potitoes were carried around the 
track on chives, and finally, to conclude 
the progrun, the girls ate crackers and 
weren't accepted until they whistled a 
bar of music. 

What's all this for? For the W. A. A. 
The following freshmen girls joined: 
Pauline Ieininger, Helen Bartlett, Ger- 
aldine Boyer, Gertrude Ellenberger, 
Evelyn fridinger, Mildred Gangwer, 
Grace Geizer, Cora Graby, Mildred 
Haas, Citherine Heilman, Margaret 
Holbrook, Jean Hauck, June Krum, 
Amy Mehhardt, Edith Metzgar, Amy 
Monteith, Anna Morrison, Nellie Morri- 
son, Alice Richie, Ruth Rohrer, Dorothy 
Wentling, Catherine Whister, Dorothy 
Yeakel, D>rothy Zeiters, and Lillian Zu- 
broff. 

The committee for the initiation was 
Elizabeth Bender, Dorothy Kreamer, 
Catherine Mills. 



W. A. A. Inaugurated 
During Formal Dinner 

Many Distinguished Guests Attend 
Athletic Affair. 



On Thursday evening at 6:30 at a for- 
mal din ner in the dining hall the Wo- 
men's Athletic Association was inaugu- 
rated. 

The room was charmingly decorated 
in blue and white. On the tables, which 
were placed in a "U", there were tiny 
volley ball teams made of gum drops. 
The girls ate the chicken dinner, a very 
delicious one, by candlelight and thor- 
oughly enjoyed it. 

The speaker, Miss Anne Hodgkins, 
spoke on The Way of Life. Miss Hodg- 
kins is with the National Recreation 
Association, and is keenly interested in 
sports for girls and women. She was 
formerly the field secretary of the N. A. 
A. F. Dr. Lynch gave a short welcoming 
address to which Anna Orth, the W. A. 
A. ptesident, replied. 

The guests were: Miss Reeder, of Sus- 
quehanna; Miss Bowen, of Moravian; 
Miss Kobb, of Shippenbsurg; Miss Lan- 
dis, of Cedar Crest; Miss Mayer, of 
Edison Junior High, Harrisburg; Mrs. 
Meredith and Mrs. Rehfuss, of Dickin- 
son. 

The faculty guests were: Dr. and Mrs. 
Lynch, Mrs. Green, Miss Wood, Miss 
Richardson, Mr. and Mrs. Frock, Mr. 
and Mrs. Metoxen, Mr. and Mrs. Clem- 
ents, and Miss Henderson. 

The conunittee on decorations was 
Carolyn Kohler and Carolyn Roberts. 
The table decorations were taken care 
of by Agnes Morris and Ernestine Jag- 
nesak.

Notes On Books 

Just recently there has come into the 
library a periodical that is certainly of 
value to all. It is the Motion Picture 
Review Digest, published by the H. W. 
Wilson Company, the same concern who 
publishes the Reader's Guide. The pur- 
p<> e of the magazine is to guide one in- 
to the best choice of movies. 

The content of the magazine is this: 
for each movie reviewed there is a list 
of the principal players, followed by a 
brief note describing the picture, its na- 
ture and plot. Then there are excerpts 
from various reviews. Along with these 
reviews there are signs to show the rat- 
ing of the movie; ^Exceptionally good, 
*Good, *— Fair, — *Mediocre, — Poor, 

Exceptionally poor, 'lhe sources of 

reviews are trade papers which inform 
the exhibitor of the commercial drawing 
power of the film; general newspapers 
and magazines Which inform the adult 
patron of the artistic and entertainment 
qualities of the picture; and special re- 
viewing organizations which pass on 
questions of morality and evaluate the 
suitability of films for children of vari- 
ous ages. 

# * « » 

In addition to thia interesting and 
worthy pamphlet, several new books 
have been acquired. Roll River, by 
James Boyd: The current of life runs 
strong and deep through the pages of 
this new novel, in which James Boyd 
departs from the historic America of the 
earlier books which have won him lasting 
fame, and writes of men and women of 
today. The story begins in the 1880's. 
The scene is Midian, a Pennsylvania city 
on the banks of a great river. The char- 
acters belong to the old families of the 
town, well-to-do, conservative, hard 
workers, hearty livers, lovers of good 
horses, and jealous of integrity of their 
social class. 

Clara Rand, lovely daughter of a Mi- 
dian aristocrat, and Tommy, her nephew 
— who is a baby when the story begins — 
are the leading characters. Clara's tragi- 
cally beautiful romance and brief mar- 
ried life with Fitz-Greene Rankin, her 
ill-fated lover and husband, have their 
emotional counterparts in the problems 
that Tommy, grown to manhood, finds 
that he must face in his own family 
circle. 

Clara's story, complete in itself, blends 
into that of her nephew. He grows up, 
marries, takes an active part overseas 
in the World War, and returns to home 
where he is mentally and emotionally out 
of place. How with the help of his aunt 
he salvages his life provides one of the 
most charming themes of the book. For 
rich and comp'etely human characteriza- 
tions, steady flow of narrative, moving 
drama, warm-hearted humor and brav- 
ery of outlook, Mr. Boyd's novel has few 
equals in American fiction.

Friday night and Saturday afternoon 
the 17th and i8th Delphian is sponsoring 
Every Saturday Night. A domestic 
comedy drama of a typical American 
family starring June Lang. 

In the story Mr. Evers wants his kids 
to have a real life but according to his 
dictates. Ma thinks he's a bit old- 
fashioned. Little Lucy mimics the screen 
stars and young Roger is the family 
miser and Shylock. Adolescent Jack and 
Bonnie are in the throes of puppy love 
with Millicent and Tom Dayton. Granny 
is a very modernistically inclined if 
somewhat erratic old girl. 

There are squabbles to borrow the 
family car, frantic pleas to buy an- 
other one, the long lovely waits while 
the older younsters are out and Pop 
imagines the most terrible things hap- 
pening to them. There are the deals 
the kids make with each other, serious 
injuries and Jack in the clutches of the 
law. 

These typical stories and dramas are 
quite new but are becoming very popu- 
lar. Audiences want to see the real fa- 
mily life and not the dramatized fairy- 
tale. 

You may buy one ticket and go to 
either show or buy two tickets and see 
the three features plus the added at- 
tractions. Tickets may be bought in ad- 
vance from any Delphian girl and the 
proceeds will aid this campus organiza- 
tion. 



Stephen Deak, Cellist 

To Play Here April 16 

{Continued From Page i) 

Musical Fund Quartet, appeared in many 
concerts in New York, Philadelphia and 
other cities of the east." 

His fame as an authority* of his in- 
strument became established by the 
publication of his Modem Method for 
the Violincello, in two volumes, which 
great critics have recognized as an extra- 
ordinary work among modern pedago- 
gical literature. 

In 1929 Joseph Hoffman appointed 
him as violincello instructor on the fa- 
culty of the Curtis Institute of Music. 
Philadelphia. Since then he has been 
teaching violincello and chamber music 
at the Peabody Conservatory in Balti- 
more and conducting the Hagerstown 
Symphony Orchestra. 

Press notices from Vienna, Austria, 
have said "His program had as color- 
ful a variety as his playing which marked 
him as an extraordinary artist. First, 
one notices his full, expressive tones and 
his warm musical temperament, which 
his playing reflects. His technique is 
equally significant and brilliant. The 
Philadelphia Bulletin, "Played with ex- 
quisite purity of tone, perfect phrasing, 
depth of musicianship, and singular 
charm." These and many others prove 
to everyone the value of his presence to 
music lovers. 



CONSERVE NOTES 



A particularly attractive program was 
presented at Tuesday evening's student 
recital in Eng'.e Hall. Miss Beula Dnf- 
fey assisted in three two-piano numbers 

The first item was Schubert's Moment 
Musical, with Luther Immler and Miss 
Duffey at two pianos. Schubert's gay 
lyrical gift is quite evident in this de- 
lightful piece. Immler, led by Miss Duf- 
fey's encouraging accompaniment, play 
ed well. 

Next, Mary Kauffman sang three 
songs. The first, Brahm's Lullaby, re- 
vived memories of Mary's appearance 
as the Virgin Mary in last year's Ger- 
man Nativity play, in which 'she sang 
this number. Her second offering, Jen- 
sen's Lehn deine Wamg an meine Wang, 
captured the delicate and tender feeling 
characteristic of that composer. Her 
most charming number, however, was 
Wilson's Nymphs and Shepherds, one of 
those delightful lyrics of the seventeenth 
century composer who set Shakespearian 
lyrics to music. The singer seemed genu- 
inely in love with the tuneful song. 

Lucille Maberry, with Miss Duffey, 
played a two-piano arrangement of Ron- 
do a la Turca, Mozart-Barth. The num- 
ber was energetically interpreted, al- 
though Miss Duffey's more-rapid read- 
ing seemed to cause Miss Maberry slight 
discomfort. 

The andante movement of Von Dit- 
tersdorf's Quartette in E Flat was pre- 
sented by Helen Butterwick — violin, 
John Zettle noyer — violin, Eugene Say- 
lor — viola, and Dorothy Zeiters — cello. 
In this placid quarte'te the distinguishc! 
Viennese composer forsook the vivacity 
and the vein of comedy which marked 
his many gay operas, but his bright and 
spontaneous melody is quite evident in 
this leisurely composition. 

Anna Morrison sang Cadman's The 
Little Road to Kerry, Clokey's The 
Rose, and that delightful old English 
air, O, No, John. In the first two num- 
bers Anna sang strongly in good tone, 
with, however, a tendency to shift her 
tones from the throat to the mouth. Her 
last number was excellent, her dramatic 
skill evidencing it e'f in her amusing 
mimic of that long-dead lover, John, and 
his saucy lass. 

The exotic Arabesque Valsante, Le- 
vitzki, written for piano, created a re- 
freshing change in the mood of the pro- 
gram. The minor note of this composi- 
tion is well-conceive 1; the general effect

of the rhythm is that of a boat lifting 
and falling upon the seaswell as it drifts 
past the sandy, palm-dotted shore of 
some eastern land. Miss Fink interpret- 
ed the number competently. 

Mnrche Religieuse, Guilmant, a simple 
piece in structure, but imbued with the 
beauty of French Catholicism, was ably 
played as an organ solo by Mable Yings*. 

The allegro movement of the preten- 
tious Bach Concerto in D Minor was 
played by Martha Elser — violin, Russell 
Hatz — violin, with Nancy Bowman at 
the piano. The composition was eom- 
mendably given, but it is a question in 
this reviewer's mind whether Bach music 
played by immature students does not 
degenerate into excellent technical ex- 
ercise at the expense of losing spiritual 
significance. This point is not so well 
founded in considering the lively allegro 
composition here offered, but the feasi- 
bility of offering the Bach sonatas or 
fugues in student recital without lengthy 
study is another matter. 

Anita Patschke and Miss Duffey ap- 
peared in the two-piano Mozart Concerto 
in L\ Minor. This masterly composition, 
marked by perfect style, melody, free- 
dom, and balance, was the highspot of a 
most enjoyable evening. Misses Patschke 
and Duffey's interpretation of this con- 
certo (one of Mozart's last, written in 
his late Viennese period) was successful 
in recreating the passion, the wild, sav- 
age beauty, that must have inspired the 
great composer during its composition. 
That such a great work was so effective- 
ly presented is a tribute both to Miss 
Patschke's unquestionable ability and to 
her capacity for experiencing profound 
emotion, as well as a recommendation of 
Miss Duffey's vivifying spirit. 

The total effect of the program was 
one of excitement and admiration.

Kiss Duffy Gives 
Program In Chapel 



MUCH APPLAUSE 



MERITS 



Beethoven Number and Two Pre- 
Bachs Heard by Students. 



Miss Duffey again captivated the L. V. 
q student body and faculty with a fif- 
teen-mir.ute piano recital Thursday 
morning during the regular Chapel 
period. 

Appearing on the conservatory stage 
m her favorite iris suit and blue shirt 
w ith masculine tie, Miss Duffey expect- 
ed to satisfy the enthusiasm of the as- 
sembled students with five minutes of 
very fine Beethoven. However, leaving 
the stage at the completion of these two 
movements, she became aware that she 
hadn't and returned to play a selection 
of pre-Bach, a tocotta of the Italian 
School. "You see, they had pep even in 
those days," she said as she sat down to 
play it. 

Even that did not seem enough to the 
students, so they clapped vigorously un- 
til she came back to play another pre- 
Bach number, this one being of the 
French School — "The Cuckoo". Being a 
familiar selection to many of the au- 
dience, its rendition called forth even 
more applause than her previous num- 
bers. Chapel time was then exhausted. 
Continued clapping brought only a Duf- 
tey bow and a "thank you kindly". 

Next week Miss Duffey will have a 
leave of absence from the conservatory 
to do some research work at the Library 
of Congress, Washington, D. C. Follow- 
ing Easter she will return to serious 
work with her pupils in preparation for 
' the Spring recitals.

On Wednesday, April i, prayer meet- 
ing was held as usual in Philo Hall, un- 
der the direction of Audrie Fox. Music- 
opened the meeting, then Psalm 92 was 
read responsively. A hymn was sung and 
Flora Strayer led in prayer after which 
she read the scripture. Rose Tschopp 
sang a very beautiful solo, Let Not Your

The Green Blotter Club held a de- 
ferred meeting at Dr. Struble's home in 
Cleona on Thursday evening, April 2. 

Seven members would have responded 
to the roll call of noms de plumes had 
Headscop Straub not decided to dis- 
pense with this routine procedure. He 
did not want to divulge the pen names 
of David Yake, Sylva Harclerode, Max- 
ine Early, Helen Netherwood, Rohert 
Long, Louis Straub, and Alice Richie 
to their guests: June Gingrich, Edgar 
Messersmith, Louise Stoner, Dorothy 
/.eiters, Anna Mary Herr, and Martha 
Elser. 

The assemblage from Lebanon Valley 
College was pleased to meet a Bryn 
Mawr College student, Miss Emily Doak, 
who was spending a vacation at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble. 

Sylva Harclerode was appointed critic 
for the evening, although the guests 
were encouraged to enter freely into the 
discussion. 

By proxy William Clark had sent 
three articles. Almost simultaneously 
with the reading of the first title, De 
Formo&a Pulchrissinm, came little "Ton- 
ky" Struble's bedtime. When the boy- 
said "good night" to Messersmith, Ixmis 
Straub expected to hear "Auf Wieder-

Bill Clark described a cow's eyes as 
being blue-brown. This caused an argu-

mon all nations in spirit of friendship to 
the United States. After her interpre-

Women's Sports Ideal 
Outlined By Speaker 

Miss Hodgkins, Leader in Field, 
Heard in Chapel. 



The chapel program of April 3rd was 
distinguished by a guest speaker, Miss 
Anne Hodgkins of New York City. Miss 
Hodgkins was the former field Secretary 
of the National Amateur Athletic Asso- 
ciation. She is now connected with the 
National Recreation Association. 

Miss Hodgkins is deeply interested in 
all sports and health programs for girls 
and women. The subject of her talk was 
modern sports for modern girls. She 
introduced her topic by speaking of the 
liner, freer life that participation in 
sports gives. 

The speaker outlined the objectives of 
the ideal women's sports program which 
is being developed in this country since 
the war. The first essential for the ideal 
is that we have a program for all girls 
There must be a great variety of sports 
and emphasis on intra-mural competi-

Valley Diamond Champs 

To Open At Gettysburg 

Lebanon Valley's diamond aggrega- 
tion, defending champions in the Eastern 
Pennsylvania Collegiate League, will 
open their season April 18 at Gettysburg 
against the Bullets, the only league team 
co defeat the Flying Dutchmen last 
season. 

All present indications point to a suc- 
cessful baseball season for "Chief" Me- 
toxen's charges, despite the graduation 
of seven of the players who were mem- 
bers of last season's championship squad. 

Paul Billett, sensational twirler, ••Dan- 
ny" Bartolet, slugging first-sacker, and 
Raymond Patrizio, hard-hitting outer- 
gardener are the only diamond candi- 
dates who saw regular service last year, 
although Sheesley, Tindall, and Capka 
were in the L. V. C. lir.eup in one or 
two games. 

Billett appears to be in the same fine 
physical shape which enabled him to 
pitch winning ball in the pennant drive 
of the Metoxenmen. Bartolet, who hit 
the pill at a .391 clip i;-. league competi- 
tion last spring, is back again this year 
and is counted upon heavily to add 
plenty of punch to the L. V. C. offensive 
attack. Patrizio, who hit for a mark of 
.304 last season, is also making a deter- 
mined bid for an outfield post on this 
year's nine. 

Sheesley, who saw service in the cut- 
held during the 1935 action, is being used 
at the shortstop position by Coach Me- 
toxen, Tindall is a pitching candidate, 
ar.d Capka is making a strong bid for 
an infield job, either at second or third 
base. 

Other promising infield candidates in- 
clude Ralph Billett, who is also a pitcher 
of no little ability, Harold Kroske, who 
has been covering the third sack in prac- 
tice sessions, Ernest Snyder, second- 
baseman, Raymie Frey, first-sacker, Gor- 
don Davies, third-base, and Eugene 
Shenk, keystone-sacker. Coach Metoxen 
has also been experimenting with Pa- 
trizio at the short-field position. 

Outfield candidates include Clair Snell, 
a natural hitter, Howe Keiter, Tony 
Rozman, Marshall Frey, and Clifford

L. V. Music Students 
Attend Conference 



SPEND WEEK IN NEW YORK 



Toscanini, Damrosch, and Opera Fea- 
ture in Vast Program of Events. 



Back again to the humdrum existence 
of L. V. C. campus after a whole week 
of the bright lights and the roar of 
Broadway. Only pleasant memories come 
surging back— it's all over but the shout- 
ing — which was probably the foremost 
tendency in the minds of the nineteen 
Conservatory members who left New 
York Sunday morning, April 5, to re- 
turn to classes after attending the Music 
Educators National Conference. 

In review — we arrived there last Sun- 
day in time to secure rooms and unpack 
before going to Carnegie Hall at 3:00 
to hear the Philharmonic Symphony 
Orchestra with Arturo Toscanini, the 
conductor, giving his last performance of 
the season. In the evening we heard the 
concert at the Juilliard School of Music 
and then the Lobby Sing at Cafe Rouge 
oi the Hotel Pennsylvania, which was 
held every night. 

Up Monday morning bright and early 
•we registered at the Hotel Pennsylvania 
and subscribed to the year book of the 
concert. Then the rounds of the exhibit 
on the Mezzanine Floor of the Hotel. At 
9:30 A. M. was the First General Ses- 
sion at the Metropolitan Opera House, 
where one of the most interesting fea- 
tures of the conference was presented 
—the Joliet (Illinois) Township High 
School Band. There were also addresses 
and music by other groups. In the after- 
noon were more exhibits and the Second 
General Session at the Metropolitan 
Opera House, where a group of chorals 
were given. At 8:15 P. M. was the 
Concert of the New York City Schools 
af: Madison Square Gardens. It was here 
'hat Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt pre- 
sented Dr. Walter Damrosch with a 
Testimonial from New York City School 
Children. Then at 11 P. M. came the 
crowning event of the day— a reception 
and dance in the Grand Ballroom of the 
Hotel Pennsylvania, with a grand march 
and all the trimmings. And so to bed at 
2:30 A. M. 

Tuesday started with a breakfast at 
7 -30 A. M. for the Founders, Past Presi- 
dents and Life Members, which we 
didn't attend owing to a dreadful neces- 
sity for sleep. Also we missed a Band 
Clinic, and various classes on Community 
Music, Elementary Music, and Instru- 
mental Music. More exhibits in the af- 
ternoon and more classes. 

A voice and a pianoforte clinic fol- 
lowed in the afternoon and then came— 
Grand Opera! Rene Maison and Elisa- 
beth Rethberg in Lohengrin at the Me- 
tropolitan Opera House. We joined In 
the Lobby Sing again that evening, and 
enjoyed a trip through Chinatown.

Exodus 

"And now the time has come to say — An Eevoir." This special issue is the 
last one for the staff that took over the La Vie Collegiexne way back there oa 
Thursday, April IX, 1935. It has been a most pleasant and enjoyable year, the be^c 
of our college clays for most of us ' oldsters a year fraught with new experiences 
and obstacles overcome. As the reins of the college paper slip from our aging 
grasp, the urge top reminiscences comes upon us, an urge that is irreaisi-aoie. AUu 
so, if you will bear with the horn4dowing pratings of a sensility that lives on pass, 
accomplishments, we shall dust out the editorial garret and give a la..t tmai amng 
to some of the treasured trophies that we shall take with us, although they arc 
important perhaps only to us who have worked for them. 

We hearken back to our second edition, old Vol. XII, No. 2, of the Lillipui 
size, in which we set forth certain definite aims which we promised 10 strive lv 
fulfill. Then we glance to an analysis of the condition of the paper at present aao 
(you'll pardon us) a warm feeling pervades our heart. Once, in another weak mo- 
ment, when someone overheard us boasting about the things we were doing on the 
paper we were asked, "Well, what are you doing, anyway?" Quick, Henry, the sta- 
tistics! We'll get that guy now! 

When the present staff took the helm last year La Vie was in a pretty bad 
way financially. It was necessary to continue the small four column si/.e paper 
then in vogue if we were to have any paper at all. Through the eitorts or our sa- 
gacious business staff, alone and with no outside help, our paper was pulled out ox 
its financial slump by its own bootstraps so that we now can well aiford a decent, 
large size edition, and we have an extremely comfortable surplus in our treasury. 

The first paper this staff put out contained 194 column inches of reauing mat- 
ter. We now have 290 inches. At least the public is getting more paper and ink 
for their money than when we started. Our first five papers, excluding the Alumni 
Issue, averaged 9 news articles per issue with an average of 8 of them on the front 
page. For the last six months we have increased that to an average of 19 news 
articles per issue, 13 of them on the front page. This increase is due to the reor- 
ganization that it was necessary to effect in order to make our news-gathering net 
more efficient, and which involved: a greater division of authority, a greater con- 
centration of responsibility, the creation of regular beats, raising of the staff 
morale, and the education of the individual staff member. 

As for regular column features, our first few issues averaged 3. Our average 
now is 5, and in several papers we ran as high as 7. From the old staff we in- 
herited 9 different column features to be used periodically. We abandoned 2 of 
them as lacking in originality (Boomerang and Beyond the Campus) and our fea- 
ture department cooked up 12 new ones, some of which were highly successful, 
gaining recognition in the press of other schools as well as on the campus. 

Our first issue contained a total of 14 articles of all types, the average for the 
first few issues being slightly less than 14. Our 25th issue contained 32 separate 
articles, the average for the last few months being slightly less than 30. As the 
chief function of our paper is to record current campus events, we answer to those 
who ask us what we have done and who are incapable of appreciating anything 
but statistics, that we have increased in efficiency in performing our major function. 

To the more broad-minded we add that we have tried to bring our school paper 
alive. We have tried to make our editorials say something, and when we had noth- 
ing to say we did not write editorials. In our columns and features we have at- 
tempted to inject more originality and to get rid of rehashed copy from other 
periodicals; we have attempted to jar the student body out of its rut of compla- 
cency by saying things intended to bring comment pro and con; we have tried to 
make the paper more than the dry pulp it is printed on, clinging to the belief that 
people and periodicals should have some ideas in their proper places, and that it 



is a healthy condition both for a newspaper to be interesting enough to be read 
and for college students to be tempted to discuss what they read in their own paper. 
That is the reason, for instance, why we have two reviews of major plays. We 
hope that the reviews will differ, because then the reader may readily see that there 
are more viewpoints than one and he will be called upon to exercise his own criti- 
cal faculty to determine how he thinks, rather than swallowing someone else's 
ideas whole. 

In this respect, too, we feel that we have been successful. For is it not true 
that the La Vie is more discussed now than when we started? And are not more 
people taking an active interest in reading it? Our circulation department knows, 
when they do not deliver the papers on time. Neither do we have the complaint of 
an editorial in another college paper, with whom we exchange, which mourns the 
fact that they haven't received a letter to the editor in three years! We envision 
the time when, with the lead given by the present staff, a lively page of letters and 
answers will be a regular feature of La Vie and that much benefit will be derived 
from worthwhile opinions printed there. 

One of the more tangible effects that we will leave to our journalistic posterity 
is a style book for reporters, which we undertook to compile earlier in the year, 
and which we have now completed, although the job was much bigger than we bar- 
gained for. This should aid in further improving the style and quality of our news 
articles. 

But, we have done enough of this sort of thing. We take a final bow with 
thanks to those faculty and students who have been generous enough to offer 113 
encouragement or to write to us in order to disagree with us. To those iconoclasts 
who have done all the tooting, but have not had the courage to back up beliefs with 
letters, we meet you on your own ground if you will not meet us on ours and return 
the razzberries quart by quart without removing the containers. May we close with 
the toast: here's to a better La Vie Collegienne and a better Lebanon Valley 
College.

United States delivering a series of lec- 
tures at Swathmore College. Dr. Steven- 
son says his trip was to kill two birds 
with one stone for he went with the pur- 
pose of booking passage to England in 
June. 

Due to the weather Dr. Derickson could 
not take his bird study group on a field 
trip last Saturday. He said it would not 
be worth while because the birds would 
not be very active during the cold spell. 
He plans to finish laboratory work in 
warmer weather when they can study in 
the fields.

Just before the flood calamity, Dr, 
Derickson received a letter from a rep- 
resentative of the State Game Commis- 
sion telling him that the State had taken 
the collection and that the college was 
welcome to those specimens they would 
like to have. 

Twenty-five of the seventy-five speci- 
mens are water birds which Dr. Derick- 
son was very glad to receive. The bird 
skins are quite old and years of dust and 
dirt have collected in their gay plumes, 
but after some cleaning and brushing 
they will contribute greatly to the col- 
lege's collection of local bird life.

and You and I, the Kalo-Delphian 
play. Likewise without

hesitation, we choose "Hal" Phillips as 
e director with "Ed" Schmidt and 
Mien Rutherford as his assistants. This 
combination we choose primarily be- 
cause of their superb display of industry 
and originality in the staging of The 
Admirable Crichton. The choice of the 
play, itself, we shal assign to Philo and 
Qio literary societies because of the 
wisdom and knowledge of campus appeal 
that they showed in their selection oi 
Children of the Moon. 

When it comes to casting, our task be- 
comes more difficult. We shall assume 
for convenience that our play calls for 
a male and female lead, two major 
minor parts — if you know what wc 
mean — , a comic character, two "bits", 
and the ever present pair of sweethearts. 

The female lead goes to Anna Morri- 
son. Miss Morrison in The Late Chris- 
topher Bean gave such a splendid char- 
acterization of battle-axe Haggett that 
we immediately did her the injustice of 
concluding that she was a "type"— - 
nothing more. Then she stunned us by 
returning to the stage as the perfect per- 
sonification of mature grace and beauty 
and serenity, as the would-be artist's 
wife in You and I. To the male lead we 
assign Lester Krone. Although both in 
Children- of the Moon and in The Late 
Christopher Bean, Lester played parts 
that could have been nothing more than 
straight "sweetheart" roles, we believe 
that the very fact that he made himself 
felt even in those parts justifies our 
choice of him as a star among stars. 

Those whom we select for the "major 
minor" parts in our all-star production 
are in reality close runners-up of Miss 
Morrison and Mr. Kror.e. They are 
Sylva Harclerode and Robert Spohn—

real Japanese kimonos and wearing 
chrysanthemums in their hair, coquette 
with each other with case and grace. 

In contrast with the charming dignity 
of tin- Japanese dance, the uniformity 
and vigor of the Swedish drill and na- 
tional clap dance brings almost star- 
tling relief. Patterning the national cos- 
tumes as closely as possible, pastel-col- 
ored skirts of pink, green, and yellow 
witli colored bands around the border 
and black-laced bodices will be worn by 
the girls. Chief Mctoxen, who is coach- 
ing the men, has announced that in the 
drill the men will wear their gym suits. 

Announced by impudent castanets, 
Spain follows Sweden. Sophisticated 
young ladies in evening gowns and high 
combs glide calmly, secure in the assur- 
ance of their perfect appearance. The 
solo dance is passionate, high-spirited. 

Gay, jolly, Irish colleens express all 
the independence of fighting Ireland in 
the original Irish Lilt. Emerald green 
skirts, white lawn blouses, green ker- 
chiefs make the Freshmen music stu- 
dents real Irish colleens. 

Russia, introduced by a Russian male 
chorus, displays the brilliant color con- 
trast of that country. A group of six- 
teen Russian dancers vehemently stamp 
out a typical Russian dance in red and 
black full skirts and shiny boots. 
SPECIAL INDIAN DANCE 

An Indian Dance, taught to the men 
by Chief Metoxen, opens the program of 
the United States. A special feature will 
be a dance by the chief's tiny son and 
daughter. A natural scarf dance by 
three girls gowned in red, white, and 
blue will portray the American flag. In 
closing Mozart's Minuet in all the dig- 
nity and grace of our Colonial South 
will be danced by twenty-four Junior 
and Senior men and women, who will be 
dressed in rich colonial costumes. 

In cool organdies the Junior class will 
dance the traditional Maypole dance. 
The grand finale and the exit of the 
May-queen will then mark the end of 
this 1936 May pageant.

marooned in endangered buildings, car- 
rying rations to those in need, assisting 
with clothing distribution and with 
numerous other means of assistance to 
flood stricken victims. 

Mr. Shaffer was without sleep from 
Tuesday to Saturday, as were the other 
64 men of the Battery, in an endeavor to 
be of as much assistance as possible. 
They were given 18 hours guard duty 
and six hours relief work a day for 
three days. On Saturday in response to 
an S.O.S. more men and rations were 
shipped in and they were placed on a 
routine schedule of three hours guard 
duty ar.d three hours rest alternating 
until Wednesday morning when the Hood 
receded enough to permit the town to 
attempt its continuation of daily func- 
tions. There were damages amounting in- 
to the millions, for buildings were 
washed away or nearly destroyed by the 
onrush of water. Montgomery Ward 
suffered damages amounting to $55,000. 
Main street was in 18 feet of water, and 
the river front was covered by 36 feet of 
water. Many homes were completely 
destroyed and the stores were nearly 
ruined — all merchandise spoiled beyond 
hope of repair or sale. Hundreds were 
homeless, without shelter, clothing or 
food, and had to be taken care of by the 
Guard. 

The National Guard's work was of 
great assistance and they were prepared 
to stay as long as needed. The waters 
finally receded Tuesday and by Wednes- 
day the Guard abandoned Sunbury to 
leave for their own homes. The men 
were all innoculated for typhoid fever 
and scarlet fever which was prevalent 
iii the flood regions. Mr. Shaffer re- 
turned Wednesday, about 6, after a 
week's absence, tried and not sorry : t 
was over. 



The Clerk 01 Oxenford 



-Gladly Wolde he leme and gladh) 
teche 



Having observed in my colleague, 
Xenophon's late column that our estim- 
able freshmen have been lately occupied 
in enumer ting the aspects of an ideal 
woman for the delectation id' our friend, 
Dr. Struble, 1 am moved to offer you 
die following extract from a letter writ- 
ten by Francisco De Quevedo in the year 
1633. In it you will And his judgment 
of the qualities a wife should possess 
(which amount to about the same as an 
ideal woman's in my opinion) — a judg- 
ment with which I am very much in ac- 
cord. 

"I desire positively she should be well 
born, virtuous, and discreet; for, if a 
fool, she will not know how to preserve 
or make use of the other two qualifica- 
tions, because, though a gentlewoman, 1 
expect she will be affable; and that her 
virtue be such as becomes a married wo- 
man, not an anchorite, a nun, or a friar. 
Her husband and the care of her family 
must be to her instead of the choir and 
the oratory. Yet, if she must be discreet 
witli any touches of learning, I had 
rather she were a fool: for it is easier to 
bear with a woman's ignorance than with 
her conceit. 

"I would have her neither deformed 
nor beautiful. These extremes are recon- 
ciled by an agreeable countenance; which 
is a medium that renders what is hand- 
some lovely, and secures what in her ap- 
pears airy. A deformed woman is rather 
a scarecrow than a companion, and a 
beautiful one perplexes rather than de- 
lights; but if she must be either the one 
or the other, I had rather have her beau- 
tiful than deformed, for it is better to 
be in care than to be afraid, and to have 
a wife to guard than one to fly from. 

' 1 would have her neither rich nor 
poor, but with some fortune; for neither 
is she to buy me, nor 1 her. There can 
be no lack of riches where there is virtue 
and gentility; for the man is vilely rich 
who, having an estate, refuses a woman 
because she is poor; and he is basely 
poor who, having no fortune, covets a 
woman_ because she is rich. 

"I had rather she was disposed to 
mirth than melancholy; for being tied to 
one another and living always together 
will breed us both trouble enough; and 
this grievance is in some measure eased 
by a sweet and cheerful nature; for to 
have a hypochondriac wife, always 
grunting in a corner like a mouse in a 
cheese, is to be tied to continual sorrow. 

''She must be well dressed to please 
me, not to gain the applause of others; 
and she must wear what is decent, not 
whatsoever the folly of other women 
shall invent. 

"She must not do as some do, but that 
which all ought to do. 

"I had rather she were miserly than 
prodigal; for whereas this vice is to be 
dreaded the other may prove profitable. 
It were a great happiness to find one 
that were liberal. 

"I do not concern myself whether she 
be clear or brown of complexion, or 
whether her hair be black or fair; only 
this 1 require, that if she be brown, she 
do not make herself white, for of neces- 
sity a man must rather be jealous of 
that cheat than in love with it. 

"Whether she be tall or short is a mat- 
ter of indifference to me: for the heels 
of the shoes supply the defects of stat- 
ure, and, like death, make all people 
alike. 

"As to her being fat or lean, it is to 
be observed that if I cannot have her 
interlaid, I am altogether for a lean, not 
a fat one; I had rather she were skele- 
ton, or shot herring than a greasy host- 
ess or the picture of Bacchus. 

"I will neither have a child nor an old 
woman, which is like the cradle or the 



e I in; for I have long since forgotten 
to sing lullabies, and have not yet 
learned to sing dirges. It is enough for 
me that she is a woman grown, and I 
shall be well pleased if she is young. 

"I could wish with all my heart she 
might not have hands, eyes, or mouth 
too beau i ul; for if she have these three 
things in perfection, it is impossible any- 
body should endure her, because she will 
lire ad the world with playing with her 
hinds that they may be seen, and rolling 
her eyes that they may be observed; and 
it is intolerable to see a woman always 
gaping and laughing to show her white 
teeth. Anxiety destroys beauty, and neg- 
ligence hides faults. 

"I will not have one that has neither 
father nor mother, that I may save com- 
merotaing the dead; nor am I anxious 
that she should have all her kindred liv- 
ing. A father and mother I would have, 
because I am not superst'tiously afraid 
of a father-in-law. As for her aunts, I 
shall be glad if they are in purgatory, 
and will aP.ow masses to be said for them 
again and again. 

"I should bless God if she were deaf 
and tongue-tied, which are parts that 
tire company and cut off visits: and, 
above all, should be proud she were ill- 
natured; for a fair conditioned woman is 
always harping upon the same string and 
wishing she were like other women, say- 
ing that her foolish good nature is to 
blame." 



Notes On Books 

Keeping abreast with current events, 
and again bringing into prominence the 
illustrious Lindberghs, comes Norlli to 
the Orient by Anne Morrow Lindbergh 
with maps by her husband Charles. 
North to the Orient is a travel narra- 
tive which describes the flight which the 
Lindberghs made to the Orient, in the 
summer of 1931, by the Great Circie 
Route. Taking off from Long Island, 
they flew by way of North Haven, 
Maine and Ottawa to a tiny fur-trading 
post at Baker Lake, along the coast of 
Canada ar.d then to Point Barrow, "the 
bleak northern tip' of Alaska." After a 
forced landing on the way to Nome, they 
crossed to Siberia. Another forced land- 
ing, off the shore of the multitudinous 
islands of Japan, and they reached the 
main island. 

From Osaka, where they discovered a 
stowaway in the plane, they went across 
the Yellow Sea to China, up to Nanking. 
Once there, Colonel Lindbergh helped to 
bring aid to flood refugees. Shortly af- 
terwards, their flight ended when the 
plane overturned as it was being low- 
ered from the British airplane carrier, 
H crmcs. 

Albert of Belgium by Emil Cam- 
maerts. Few monarchs have aroused in 
their lifetime such intense enthusiasm as 
did King Albert of Belgium. The book 
opens with a dramatic description of the 
outbreak of the Great War, showing the 
thirty-five year old King, refusing to 
surrender the independence of Belgium, 
and the people's enthusiastic response to 
die challenge. 

Then the author goes back to describe 
the boyhood of King Albert, who be- 
came heir presumptive to the crown at 
sixteen ; his military training, his taste 
for engineering, his love of sport, es- 
pecially mountaineering and aviation, his 
early visits to America and England; 
his trip to Belgian Congo; his marriage 
to Elisabeth of Bavaria; his accession 
to the throne in 1909; and his deep in- 
terest in the welfare of the people. 

The story of the war days from the 
Belgian point of view is most moving. 
The author shows throughout the loyalty 
and invincible spirit of the people; the 
quiet dignity and simple warm-hearted 
humanity of the King. 

The final chapters are no less interest- 
ing with their account of the king's pro- 
blems and achievements, and finally the 
full story of his fatal accident.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1936 




The Kind of Husband 1 

Expect to Choose 

I, as every other girl, have my dreams 
and hopes appearing to me many times 
during my first years of maturity. I 
dream of the little home I will have 
amid many other lovely homes. A home 
with white woodwork, and a cozy fire- 
place. The tiny kitchen in which I shall 
cook and bake. The pleasant nursery for 
my growing children with white cribs, 
l)ink blankets, etc., and silly toys. 

Among my many hopes comes the 
hope for the type of man whose person- 
ality, traits, and faults will fill my de- 
sires. Most girls choose between a 
blonde or brunette, but I am not preju- 
diced against either. Both have come in 
and gone out of my life. My ideal man 
must have the faults I like as well as the 
virtues. 

I want my husband to be the boss of 
my family. I want him to dominate me. 
I dislike very much to have a woman 
boss a man, it is a man's position to 
dominate a woman. But then I do not 
want to cater to my husband and let him 
think I will always be at his feet when 
he wants me. I want my husband to love 
me terribly and continue to do so all 
through our lives together, but I do not 
want him following me around con- 
tinually. I should like him to be slight- 
ly jealous of other men about us. A 
small amount of jeaousy is always good. 

I will not mind if he drops his ashes 
on the floor, or starts to shave just be- 
fore dinner is served. I will not mind 
if he is delayed on the golf course at 
the nineteenth hole, and is late for his 
favorite dinner I cooked. I will not 
mind the continual odor of smoke from 
his pipe or his occasional midnight par- 
ties with "the gang." I will not care if 
he goes over our weekly amount of 
spending money to buy some little gad- 
get which we both will enjoy. 

I want a man who is nice looking 
enough that I can look at him across tl/e 
breakfast table without feeling that I 
had married a poor specimen of human 
nature. My husband must be able to 
wear clothing well, especially a formal 
dress suit. I want my husband to have 
a fairly good income, not to be rolling 
in wealth or submerged in poverty. 

I want a husband who will be as much 
interested in the furnishing of our home 
as I am. I also want him to prefer twin 
beds. 

Most of all I want a man who will re- 
main young as long as possible. I want 
to continue to go to dances, parties and 
week-end trips. I hate the thought of 
growing old too fast, and the only way 
to ward off this inevitable fate is to con- 
tinue with the youthful feeling in your 
blood. But when the time comes and wc 
are old, and our children have children 
I want to feel that neither my husband 
nor myself are a burden upon anyone.

nient about the color of Old Betsy's 
irises on any man's farm. Messersmith 
was strangely silent, while Maxine Early 
failed to be an authoritative source of 
information. "Unaccustomed as I am to 
gazing into cows' eyes—," she was heard 
to say. 

Fine limericks were read by Robert 
Long; they were said to have been writ- 
ten on a street car. 

In a short story by Maxine Early, 
there was a very clever remark about 
a husband who avoided looking at his 
wife by propping a newspaper between 
them at the breakfast table. 

"What is nicer than a heart in 
spring?" read the last line in one of 
Sylva Harclerode's nameless poems. Ed- 
gar put up two fingers. 



Louis Straub sheepishly read a poem 
that appeared in a recent La Vie. Such 
a work of art can only be appreciated 
when read with great expression; Louis 
gave a very soulful rendition. 

Reminiscences of recent meetings re- 
called "phwong," the spelling one writer 
used for the sound made by tobacco 
juice in hitting a cuspidor. Knowing 
that spit is a horrid word, the Green 
Blotter members and their guests set out 
to demonstrate their remarkable linguis- 
tic abilities in finding a substitute. Be- 
sides the Pennsylvania Dutch equivalent, 
the Greek was mentioned; it sounds like 
"pitooie." Perhaps some of the poets 
may later find these helpful. 

"My Canary" was the title of Alice 
Richie's poem about the unfortunate bird 
which had to die young. This pet, crip- 
pled by a stroke at the age of eight, meL 
the Creator at the end of an auto ex- 
haust pipe. 

As if in contrast to some exotic deli- 
cacies, such as canned rattlesnake and 
alligator meat, which mysteriously 
slipped into the discussion, Mrs. Stru- 
ble served delicious refreshments as us- 
ual. The meeting adjourned, the gather- 
ing split into garrulous groups which 
chattered while the clock frowned upon 
them from Dr. Struble's mantlepiece. 



L. V. Music Students 

Attend Conference 



(Continued From Page i) 



On Wednesday there were breakfasts, 
exhibitions, an orchestra clinic or. the 
Roof Garden, a High School Solo Sing- 
ing Contest and numerous classes in the 
morning. The Catholic School Music 
was held in the Opera House in the af- 
ternoon, but we skipped and went to sec 
a movie (Little Lord Fauntleroy) a: 
Radio City. That night one of the most 
impressive spectacles of the conference 
was presented — a concert of the Asso- 
ciated Glee Clubs of America in Madi- 
son Square Garden in which about a 
thousand men's voices blended into per- 
fect harmony. Helen Jepson was guest 
artist and the Joliet High School Band 
also played. 

Thursday was an off-day so we cut the 
Clinics, the Third General Session and a 
Concert of Junior High Schools and 
shopped in Wanamaker's, Macy's and 
of course in the hundreds of 5 and 10 
cent stores. We visited the aquarium 
and saw the Statue of Liberty with a 
boat ride to Staten Island, and took in a 
movie at Roxy's where Jackie Coogan 
appeared in person. In the evening there 
was a conference dinner and the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra Concert, followed 
by the Lobby Sing and so to bed with 
very, very tired feet. 

Friday morning there was an Or- 
chestra Clinic continued from Wednes- 
day's, exhibits, and the Fourth General 
Session at Center Theater, Radio City, 
where they gave a demonstration of Re- 
cent Developments in Reproduction of 
Sound, Color, and Motion. At 11:00 
A. M. we were privileged to observe the 
N. B. C. Music Appreciation Hour at 
the Opera House at which Walter Dam- 
rosch included his first performance of 
his Abraham Lincoln song with Theo- 
dore Webb, baritone solo, and a chorus 
of 400 high school students. In the af- 
ternoon there was the Fifth General Ses- 
sion with more bands, orchestras and 
addresses. Clinics and exhibitions also 
were held in the afternoon. Friday even- 
ing a Folk Festival was held with par- 
ticipants from many countries including 
Arabia, England, Finland, Italy, Mexico, 
Phili ppines, Poland, Ukraine, Russia 
and Sweden. The audience was led by 
the stage group in Folk-songs of other 
lands, and in closing, all sang Auld Lain/ 
Syne. 

The conference officially closed Fri- 
day night with the Lobby Sing, but a 
Children's Concert was held Saturday 
morning in Carnegie Hall. 



Blithering Balderdash 

by Xenophon, the Stooge 



Report of the Department of 
Investigation. 



We have been asked to divulge the 
identity of the bright boy who inserted 
Goo-goo, the duck (No, Ethel, not an 
assistant of ours) in Silvers' room 
t'other p. m. As it happens, we regret, 
however, to inform the more literate 
public, it will be impossible for us to 
comply with popular demand in this 
particular for the rather salient reason 
that although we congratulate him for 
originality, we do not know the chap 
who is responsible for the little impeca- 
dillo. We do know, though, that he 
borrowed Goo-goo from the farm of a 
Mr. Yake who lives somewhere east of 
town, and that when a couple of the 
boys decided to stroll the animal down 
to the post-office in lieu of a daily con- 
stitutional he spotted his property and 
subsequently appeared ches Lynch de- 
manding that the culprit be brought to 
the bar and Goo-goo, alas, returned to 
his natural habitat. Amazing, the way 
people do react to things. 

Having a test the same morning in a 
course wherein we had not until the pre- 
vious night been guilty of looking up the 
answers in the book, we fared forth 
about dawn after an all-night vigil with 
the lamp of learning somewhat the 
worse for black coffee and were, as a re- 
sult, quite effectually amazed by observing 
what this pig-pen penguin paddling about 
the lawn on the one end of a piece of 
clothes line of which the other end was 
attached to a robor nigra or something — 
tree to those who left before reading 
class. Some people would have sworn 

off on the spot. 

* * # # 

Our attention has been drawn to the 
fact that the weekly scrivenings smack 
of immaturity. Such, it is intimated, is 
an indeed deplorable state of affairs. 

However, we regret to announce that 
there is very little we can do about the 
matter at present, because, you see, we 
are immature — just a kid fresh from the 
country, virtually, that's us — we to the 
grammatical. 

* * * * 

In addition, one reminds us of the 
florid bozos who periodically declaim 
from the rostra that what this country 
needs is young blood— today we need the 
vitality and new ideas of youth!!! (Em- 
phasis theirs) That too, is us— we to 
the grammatical. 

* * * * 

All of which brings us to the conclu- 
sion that there is something to be said 
for ducks, since we were on the subject 
some slugs back. The duck, we have ob- 
served is a very optimistic-looking ani- 
mal. Its facial protuberance, even, turns 
slightly upward in heriocally fixed 
smile. Further, the duck is a most con- 
sistent creature. We sometimes think 
they should train ducks to be column- 
ists; then perhaps these annoying per- 
sons who get bewildered because we say 
yes on page one and no on pagina tres 
might be silenced. But, as we were say- 
ing, the duck unlike us, is consistent. It 
doesn't change its tune, that is, but in- 
stead, bravely insists on saying whatever 
it is that ducks do say in a monotone 
notable for its freedom from variety. 

* * * * 
Additional Duck Notes 

Professor Richie, upon hearing the 
animal in question indulging in the duck- 
iest soliloquy outside his window de- 
clared with some conviction that some 
one was doing a good imitation, al- 
though he wished the noise to be dis- 
continued during schoolhours. Another 
prof., on the other paw, immediately as- 
sumed that some one was handing him 
the well known berry. 

* * * * 

Mingling with the proletariat by vir- 
tue of having failed to purchase good 
-seats in advance for Tobacco Road when 



it stopped last week in Marrisburg, wo 
:lecided to play inquiring reporter dur- 
ing an intermission with a young negress 
who was sitting a few seats down the 
aisle. "What do you think of the play?" 
said we, with our best journalistic de- 
meanor. 

"Some excellent delineations of char- 
actah," said she with her Boston accent. 
* * * * 

We have said it often, but it appears 
that we must again indulge in a bit or 
persc.r.al persiflage to establish our 
supremacy as the champion professional 
bachelor. 

It appears that we have been up to our 
tricks again — in the subconscious or 
something, since the word is circulating 
that we are using our weekly disserta- 
tion as an instrument of erotic policy. 
We hasten to assure the public that the 
rumor is manifestly absurd, since any of 
our readers can testify that we have no 
policy. 

It is quite possible that we shall not 
again disgrace the columns of this as- 
tute publication with our undignified 
cavortings, since this issue is the last 
ur.der the present regime. The editor 
has been exhorting to make our last, at 
least, a good one. Just for that, we're 
firing him. You wait and see!

Women's Sports Ideal 

Outlined By Speaker

tior. rather than intensive training of 
just a few superior athletes. 

A health consciousness is what we 
need today. Miss Hodgkins suggested 
that every birthday be the occasion of a 
visit to the doctor for a physical exami- 
nation. Good health must be the basis 
of sport for modern girls. 

Miss Hodgkins warned against com- 
mercialization and the excessive giving 
of rewards. The satisfaction derived 
from participation should be the reward. 
In concluding, the speaker gave the Leb- 
anon Valley girls these ideas : women 
must be developed as women, not men ; 
and the final objective of the ideal pro- 
gram is to develop ladies, — women who 
will serve the world.

Dr. Charles W. Shoop 
Lectures In Chapel 

CHINESE LIFE IS TOPIC 



Audience Pleased with Speech of L. 
V. C. Alumnus Who Is Now En- 
gaged in Missionary Work in China 



An appreciative audience of Lebanon 
Valley College faculty members and stu- 
dents listened attentively during the 
chapel period on Tuesday, April 21, to 
an address delivered by Dr. Charles W. 
Shoop, of Canton, China. Qualified by 
twenty-five years of work in the Chinese 
mission field, the speaker was able to 
present authoritatively the problems of 
China. Dr. Shoop aimed to promote on 
our campus an understanding of the 
value of Chinese culture and a feeling 
of sympathy for the efforts being exert- 
ed to augment the culture of China with 
that of the West. Broad-minded and lib- 
eral in his views, Dr. Shoop believes 
that America also has much to gain in 
borrowing from, as well as lending to, 
the Chinese. 

An alumnus of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege in the class of 1908, Dr. Shoop was 
a member of the class of 1912 in Bone- 
brake Seminary. He received the M.A. 
degree from Columbia University in 1918 
while on furlough. He did subsequent 
graduate work in the University of Chi- 
cago. 

In China the distinguished L. V. alum- 
nus is the superintendent of the United 
Brethren mission work, the Executive 
Secretary of the Church of Christ in 
China, and Professor of Religious Edu- 
cation and Psychology in the Theological 
College in Canton.

speech, the backgrounds of Chinese and

Dr. Light Reelected 
As Science Secretary 

Light and Cassel Read Papers Before 
Pennsylvania Academy of Science 



On Friday, April 9, and Saturday, 
April 10, Lebanon Valley College was 
represented at a meeting of the Penn- 
sylvania Academy of Science held on 
the campus of Indiana State Teachers' 
College, Indiana, Pa. It will be noted 
that the meeting was held at Indiana 
and not at Chambersburg as erroneously 
reported in the last issue of La Vie. 
The group that attended the conference 
was composed of Dr. V. Earl Light, 
Robert Cassel, Kenneth King, Clarence 
Lehman, Alvin Grove, Robert Troxel 
and Paul Ellenberger. 

During the conference Dr. Light, who 
was elected secretary of the organiza- 
tion for the coming year, delivered an 
illustrated address on The Inheritance 
of Crooked Little Fingers. Mr. Cassel 
read a paper on The Relative Weights 
of the English Sparrozv. Dr. Samuel H. 
Derickson and Anna Erdman who also 
were to appear on the program were un- 
able to attend the sessions. The former 
was to deliver an address on The Rela- 
tion of Flexure and Tivisting of the 
Heart in the Chick Fmbryo, and the lat- 
ter to read a paper on The Develop-

Mens Senate To Meet 

In L Club Quarters 

The Men's Senate has accepted the in- 
vitation of the "L" club to share jointly 
with that organization its new "L" club 
room. The room will be furnished, kept 
up and used by the members of these 
two organizations alone after the rules 
for its use and upkeep are sanctioned 
and approved by the Athletic Council 
and the Senate Faculty Committee. 

Prior to this move the Senate has al- 
ways, through the courtesy of the Y. M. 
C. A., used that organization's rooms, 
in which to hold its meetings. 

If the plans, as now proposed, culmi- 
nate the Senate will have full use of the 
new room one night a week and on that 
night the regular meeting of the Senate 
will be conducted. 

The lack of space for organizations on 
the campus is well known and a step 
such as this will help solve the problem 
for at least these two organizations. 



Dr. Stevenson Plans 
Research In England 



WILL SAIL JUNE 







To Conduct Research at the Public 
Rp™«^, Office ;,-n the Black Death 
Of the King's Escheats. 



Dr. Stevenson's projected trip to mer- 
rie England, which he is making under 
the auspices of one of the more learned 
societies for the promotion of social 
science research, he has announced, will 
be officially inaugurated on June 10, 
when he sets sail on the good ship 
Roosevelt en route for Paris. 

It is his intention to meet Mrs. Stev- 
enson, who is still traveling in France 
at the present moment, there, and to 
make arrangements for having her join 
him in London early in July. It is at 
the Public Records Office in London that 
he intends to do his research, which will 
have to do with the effect of the Black 
Death on the King's Escheats, a problem 
in which he first became interested sev- 
eral years ago when writing a learned 
dissertation on English government dur- 
ing the decade i3 2 7S7, the time when 
the Plague was sweeping the British 
Isles, and especially London, with devas-

North Hall Celebrates

The sixteenth of April is a red letter

Hall, for it is the dean's birthday. Ac- 
cordingly, last Thursday night the girls 
all gathered in the parlor and invited 
Mrs. Green to come in and attend her 
own birthday party. Ruth Buck played 
the "Polish Dance" in excellent fashion 
and Gayle Mountz sang a delightful 
number entitled "The Enchanted Glade". 
Louise Gillan, who had planned the par- 
ty, then presented Mrs. Green with a 
lovely gold mesh bag as a present from 
the girls. 

While a huge cake decorated with

LIFE WORK RECRUITS 
PRESENT NOVEL PLAY 

"THE PASSING OF THE THIRD FLOOR BACK" 



Well Directed Play Initial Production for Life Work Recruits; Thompson, 
Fox, and Reber Seen as Outstanding; "Something Quite Different Than 
Heretofore Seen." 



The Passing of the Third Floor Back, presented by the Life Work 
Recruits, Tuesday evening, has all the earmarks of having been an adventure 
in play-writing by its author, Jerome K. Jerome, as every good play should, 
it presumes to have an uplifting effect upon its audience. This to-be-desired ef- 
fect failed to materialize and the failure certainly cannot be laid upon the heads 
of the willing band of inexperienced people who essayed to interpret it. The 
best of acting would go for naught if inserted into a play of such thin struc- 
ture. 

The lone prop of this structure, the single fiber of plot in other words, 
is the conversion of a squalid London lodging house, reminiscent of Madame 

Vauquer's in Balzac's Pere Goriot, and 

Dr. Wagner Convalesces 
After Recent Operation 

Dr. Paul Wagner, who underwent a 
serious surgical operation for the re- 
moval of a brain tumor at the Temple 
University Hospital on March 20, is re- 
gaining his health with almost unbeliev- 
able rapidity. He hopes to come home 
the latter part of this week. 

Dr. Temple Fay, one of the country's 
most famous brain surgeons, performed 
a miraculous piece of work of which he 
himself may well be proud. The opera- 
tion, which consisted in the removal of 
a brain tumor the size of an orange, 
required five hours for its performance. 

The wound is now practically healed, 
and the bandages have been removed. 
Dr. Wagner even found himself strong 
enough to walk across the street and at- 
tend a doctors' convention for a while. 
His strong will and wonderful courage 
have played a large part in this rapid 
recovery. 



Needy Named To Office 
In "Y" Student Council 



Lebanon Valley College Represented 
At Co-educational "Y" Conference 



Church heads, noted educators, min- 
isters of the Gospel, and leaders in 
Christian association work appeared on 
the program of the co-educational stud- 
ent "Y" conference held over the past 
week end at Kutztown State Teachers 
College, Kutztown, Pa. The conference, 
which was held under the auspices of 
the State Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation of Pennsylvania, began at 4 
P. M., April 17, with the registration of 
delegates, and came to a conclusion on 
Sunday morning, April 19, with its final 
session in St Paul's Reformed Church. 
Harry C. Giatzer, student secretary of 
the State Y. M. C. A., was in charge of 
the entire affair. The theme of the con- 
ference was "Practical Faith and Lead- 
ership." 

Fifteen colleges throughout Eastern 
Pennsylvania were represented by ap- 
proximately two hundred delegates. This 
is the first time that girls have been in- 
vited to any of the "Y" training con- 
ferences. A large number of young la- 
dies was present, making a decided con- 
tribution to the thought and success of 
the program. Plans are under way to 
(Continued on Page 2, Column 1) 



inhabited by the offal of society, into a 
place redolent of loving-kindness by the 
advent of a metaphysical creature, tM 
Stranger, who ostensibly symbolizes thV 
Christian spirit. We are introduced in- 
to a milieu of characters whose common 
fault seems to be avarice. The slattern- 
ly landlady waters the milk and the 
brandy; Miss Kite abducts a generous 
portion of the candles; the Major se- 
cretes the tea-rolls in his topper; etc. 

.... The Stranger arrives In 

In "several" weeks, under his benevolent 
influence, the Major and his wife have 
terminated their daily quarrels which 
had been in vogue for goodness-knows- 
how-long; a tin-pan piano player has 
become a concert artist and has produced 
a show, an embryo artist has executed 
two admirable chef d'oeuvres; a dried- 
up widow has blossomed forth in a new 
dress and is become the picture of ami- 
ability; and a chronic flirt has washed 
off her war-paint in a fit of contrition. 
And each of the residents of the ques 
tionable lodging house has become in- 
fected with the help-each-other spirit to 
such an extent that during the third act 
one can, in Shaw's words, veritably 
"hear the milk-cans of human 
ness rattling." 

Now such a preposterous metamor- 
phosis in a plot of such watery struc- 
ture is not good art, and neither is such 
an evangelistic conversion good religion. 
In the light of this latter point, the play 
may offer food for thought. 

It is a certainty that the world of to- 
day is in need of a spiritual awareness. 
The general run of men is lost in a maze 
of practicalities, the poetry of life hav- 
ing passed from its sight. As one writer 
expresses it, what we need today is more 
dreams and fewer diagrams. Now this 
spiritual perception, this poetry of life 
this dream, call it what you will, must 
be attained by a gradual evolution 
one's life as it is into

Marking Time 



Due to the customary procedure of selecting a new staff and having it ap- 
proved, which necessarily takes time, this week's edition was entirely the work of 
the staff who (they stated) published their last edition on Tuesday, April 7. Fol- 
lowing the recent custom of having the retiring staff assist the new editor on his 
first issue, this La Vie was made possible. We wish to thank those who have 
helped us in our task. 

Before we commit ourselves, let it be sufficient to say that there is no crying 
need for a radical change in policy. In our program, we can ask no encourage- 
ment better than the serious attention and constructive criticisms La Vie has re- 
ceived in the past. 



That Contributors' Box 

La Vie Collegienne has received many contributions of copy in the Con- 
tributors' Box in the Library. Several of these literary effusions have appeared 
in the columns of La Vie, and doubtless have brought joy and pride to the heans 
of their authors. But others of these contributions, excellent in form and content, 
have been unsigned, and thus could not be considered. 

All contributions of copy, dropped into the Contributors' Box, must be signed, 
in order to appear in La Vie. This must be done only as evidence of good faith, 
and if requested, the editor will not print the author's name in the paper.

make these co-educational conferences 
annual affairs. 

Lebanon Valley College was represent- 
ed by a delegation consisting of two wo- 
men and four men. One of this num- 
ber, Elwood Needy, who is a member of 
the Junior class, was elected to the re- 
sponsible position of president of the 
State Student Council of Eastern Penn- 
sylvania. He was chosen to succeed 
Frederick Low, a student at Franklin 
and Marshall College, who has held the 
position for the past year. 

The first session of the conference 
was conducted in Trinity Lutheran 
Church at Kutztown, on Friday night. 



Cassel Awarded Scholarship 

Robert Cassel, a senior majoring 
in biology, has been awarded a grad- 
uate scholarship to Johns Hopkins 
University, Baltimore. The scholar- 
ship in zoology will lead to the Ph.D. 
degree. Cassel may also be granted 
an assistantship. 



After an organ recital the delegates 
were welcomed by Dr. Quincy A. W. 
Rohrbach, president of Kutztown State 
Teachers College. The main address of 
the evening was given by Dr. Philip 
Allwein Swartz, who spoke on the topic, 
"Is Christianity personal, social or both?" 
Dr. Swartz is a secretary of the Federal 
Council of Churches, and has been min- 
ister, missionary, and social worker in 
various parts of the world. His discus- 
sion was followed by an open forum 
conducted by Professor Allen Bubeck 
of Kutztown College. 

The address of Saturday morning was 
delivered by Rev. Edwin N. Faye, pastor 
of the Reformed Church at Norristown. 
His topic was "Attributes of leadership 
and how we can develop them." Rev. 
Faye has a special appeal to young peo- 
ple because of his youthful vigor and 
his keen and enthusiastic interest in 
youth affairs. He has been an outstand- 
ing college athlete. 

This speech was followed by a seminar, 
in which various problems relating to 
Y. M. C. A. organization and social study 
were discussed. 

On Saturday afternoon a program re- 
view forum was conducted by Donald 
Heiges of Gettysburg College. Problems 
6f individual "Y" cabinets were aired 



Retiring Editor 




DAVID J. YAKE 



Who has just rounded out three years 
of active service on La Vie. This year, 
as editor of La Vie, he made unusual 
progress in improving the content, style, 
and format of the paper. However he 
is just putting the finishing touches to 
his most notable piece of work — a style 
book. La Vie staff has felt the urgent 
need for a style book for a number of 
years. And now Dave is going to be- 
queath one. to the new staff. 

and commented upon in an open discus- 
sion. After the forum transportation fa- 
cilities were provided for anyone who 
cared to visit the famous Crystal Cave 
near Kutztown. As an alternative to 
this the college Y. W. C. A. served tea. 

The banquet, which was held in the 
college dining hall on Saturday evening, 
was one of the high points. Professor 
Bubeck acted as toastmaster. At this 
banquet Dr. Swartz gave his second ad- 
dress on the program. He spoke this 
time on "Faith in Action." The banquet 
was followed by an entertainment and 
dance in the college gymnasium. 

At the closing session on Sunday 
morning Dr. Jacob G. Rupp delivered 
an address on the topic "I would like to 
walk once more the way Jesus walked." 
Dr. Rupp is field secretary and treasurer 
of the Board of Foreign Missions of the 
Reformed Church in the United States. 
This session was also marked by Holy 
Communion and the installation of the 
new State Student Council. 



Dr. Charles W. Shoop 

Lectures In Chapel 

(Continued From Page 1) 



American civilizations were traced; the 
Chinese were justified as being called 
superior rather than inferior people, 
since they have preserved an ancient 
culture without any period of decline. 
The progress made since 1911, it was 
pointed out, has been as great as that 
made by European nations in five cen- 
turies. 

Dr. Shoop spoke of the brilliant ca- 
reers of some Chinese friends, admitting 
that in their company he regards them 
as superiors. He mentioned the tendency 
of elderly Chinese to place their hand- 
kerchiefs to their noses in passing for- 
eigners; this, he suggested, may indicate 
the Chinese retaliation of our condescen- 
sion. 

An interesting part of the address was 
a description of the old educational sys- 
tem, abandoned in 1905 in favor of a 
governmental system of schools. After 
years of studying classics written in 1 
style approximating poetry and employ- 
ing thousands of Chinese characters, the 
scholars enclosed themselves in a small 
room to struggle with examinations for 
high governmental positions. Some died; 
others failed. Many of those who failed 
became teachers. Today, however, it is 
difficult to find teachers with a knowl- 
edge of the Oriental classics. At present 



the Chinese have an educational system 
similar to our own; lacking the funds, 
the government has been unable to ex- 
tend these advantages to all of the enor- 
mous population. 

In the short time allotted him, Dr. 
Shoop gave information regarding China 
in the World War, her revolution, and 
the position held by China today. He 
declared that in some respects China is 
more Christian than America, especially 
in her pacifism. Because of her great 
assimilating power, Dr. Shoop believes 
China could endure an invasion by the 
entire population of .Japan; within a 
century he would expect all of the Japa- 
nese to be assimilated. 

In an interview, Dr. Shoop spoke of 
the value of exchange students in pro- 
moting international understanding and 
good will. For instance, he would advo- 
cate sending an L. V. student to study a 
part of the course offered by a Chinese 
university while a brilliant Chinese man 
— most of the exchange students have 
been men — studied here. 

Dr. Shoop was pleased to find here a 
connection with China in our Dr. Wal- 
lace, whose brother, Dr. Edward Wal- 
lace, of the University of Toronto, was 
formerly General Secretary of the Chris- 
tian Education Association in China.

might be. Hence, any work of art pur- 
porting to spiritualize must bear a veri- 
similitude to life while yet possessing an 
undercurrent, or better — an overcurrent, 
which will gradually impel the mind and 
the heart toward that sublime state 
which we call religion. 

The play under discussion failed on 
several of these counts. It lacked nec 
essary verisimilitude and portrayed an 
about face conversion rather than a 
natural one. But its greatest fault was 
its bearing the stigma of propaganda. 
If there is one way not to mould re- 
ligious consciousness, it is by didacti- 
cism. 

Apart from the play's shortcomings as 
such, it was reasonably well directed, and, 
considering the experienc of the players, 
unusually well acted. One might point to 
faulty make-up (Emma Mary Smyser's 
eyelids, in particular, reminding one of a 
pair of green window-blinds), to Ethel 
Wilt's recitative and Claire Adams's too 
stentorian addresses, to Daniel Shearer's 
seasonal lisp, to Woodrow Himmel- 
wright's much-in-the-way hands, to a 
kiss which sounded like the lifting of 
one's foot out of a swamp, to a New 
York Times masquerading as The Lon- 
don Times; but after all, these are 
minor details and the usual difficulties 
of all amateurs. 

On the other hand, groups were well- 
handled to preserve stage balance and the 
set was well-conceived.

Audrie Fox as Stasia, the girlish maid 
acted in a manner which should ensure 
her future roles. Curvin Thompson 
gave quite the best performance as the 
retired major with the Micawberish trait 
of being involved in "pecuniary liabili- 
ties." Calvin Reber deserves credit for 
having "carried the play." Somehow or 
other, whether it was his argumentative 
tone of voice at times, his lack of anima- 
tion, or our own failure to catch the 
mood of the character, he was not con- 
vincing. The others of the cast plunged 
bravely through the tedious lines which 
must, at times, have seemed a figurative 
slough of Despond. 

Although Tuesday's performance was 
not up to Lebanon Valley dramatic stan- 
dards, it was a start in the field for the 
Life Work Recruit organization and a 
commendable and encouraging one at 
that.

Her dance is the most difficult of them 
all, a Grecian number with fascinating 
whirls and twirls. She deftly maneuvers 
a long Olympic flag, flashing figures of

dancer make it exquisite. 

The American Natural scarf dance 
will be skipped by three lovely coeds,— 
Carolyn Roberts, Hazel Heminway, and 
Lucille Maberry. In their brief red,

tight bodices they move gracefully, their

Ihe league took action at a meet- 
at Lancaster about a month ago 
Gettysburg was fully represented at 

the time- 

Lebanon Valley College's nine 
closed the season with a better 
record than any other club in 
the circuit. It is true that Get- 
tysburg defeated L. V. C. and 
that they closed the season with 
the same number of defeats as 
the Valley nine. However, the 
Flying Dutchmen won one more 
game than the Bullets, a fact 
which in itself would give the 
Valleyites undisputed claim to 
the title. 

Furthermore, the league officially con- 
ferred the top honors upon the Blue and 
White, and quite correctly, too. The 
formidable Metoxenmen turned in the 
most remarkable performance in the 
league's history in winning the first-place 
spot in the standings. L. V. C. boasted 
a team batting average of no less than 
,342, a sluggers' average in any league. 
The second-place team as far as hitting 
was concerned, Drexel, sported a mark 
of .286. Gettysburg was slightly over 100 
points in the rear of the Valleyites as 
far as work at the plate was concerned, 
the Bullets turning in a measly average 
of .241. In the fielding department of the 
diamond game the Valleyites were also 
lop team, registering an average of .969. 
Gettysburg was in second place in this 
phase of the play with a .962 average. 
Nine of the ten L. V. C. reg- 
ulars completed the season with 
batting averages over the .300 
mark and three men — Barney 
Mentzer, Charlie Rust, and Paul 
Billett — boasted of averages 
over the .400 mark. 

Certainly such a commendable 
record, noted in the official com- 
pilations of statistics by William 
J- Stevens, league secretary- 
treasurer, plus the official award- 
ln S of the crown by the league 
should convince any doubting 
T homas of the validity of the

Opening Tennis Match 
At E-Town Postponed 

Blue and White Racqueteers Battle 
For Places on Net Team. 



The fact that the courts at Elizabeth- 
town College have not yet been placed in 
satisfactory playing condition caused a 
week's postponement of the scheduled 
match with the Blue and White netmen 
which was to serve as the opening con- 
test of the season for both teams of 
racquetmen. 

Homer Donmoyer, "Hib" Nye, Rich- 
ard Ax, Phil DeHuff, and Ed Tallman 
were to represent L. V. C. against the 
E-towners in the order named, with 
three veterans heading the list and a 
pair of newcomers occupying the fourth 
and fifth spots in the lists. 

Matches involving four, five, and six 
men have been scheduled for the team, 
and a close battle is being waged among 
the court candidates for the last two 
positions on the team. It seems prac- 
tically certain at this writing that Don- 
moyer, Nye, Ax, and DeHuff will be 
four of the team members, although 
there seems to be some question as to 
the order in which they will line up in 
matches. 

"Wib" Shroyer will not be eligible for 
varsity net play this season, even though 
he is at the present time taking special 
work in several courses. Tallman is be- 
ing given a real battle for his place on 
the team by four other newcomers to 
L. V. C. varsity tennis, Paul Hershey, 
Eugene Shenk, Arthur Evelev, and Bud 
Umberger are the lads who are making 
strong bids for positions on the net 
crew. 



Palms are being rated favorites to cop 
the crown in the league of which they 
are now members. The exhibition con- 
test is scheduled for Palmyra's neat ball 
park at 4:45. 

* * * * 

If the members of the net team who 
witnessed these fast pro matches at Her- 
shey last Saturday night will simply 
combine the consistency displayed by 
Ellsworth Vines with the superior court 
strategy of George Lott and toss in Les- 
ter Stoefen's remarkable smashing, loop- 
ing service for good measure, they 
should be able to win a good many 
matches this spring. 

Vines and Stoefen certainly gave the 
paying public a show for their dough, 
the two terrific hitters engaging in one 
brilliant rally after another in a mag- 
nificent display of the net game at its 
best. 

* * * * 

The postponement of the first net 
match with Elizabethtown moves the 
season's opening back to April 25, when 
the racqueteers will battle Susquehanna 
in a four-man meet at Selinsgrove un- 
less fickle Jupiter Pluvius intervenes. 
The E-town match has been advanced 
to next Monday and will be a five-man 
affair. On Tuesday, April 28, the rac- 
queteers will again appear on a foreign 
field, meeting Muhlenberg at Allentown. 
The first home appearance of the Blue 
and White netmen is scheduled for May 
Day, when the Franklin and Marshall 
courtsters will come to Annville for their 
annual match. 

* * * * 

Two of the matches on the original 
net schedule have been cancelled. Ju- 
niata is unable to carry out its net 
schedule because the courts are being 
completely reconditioned and the rainy 
weather has caused frequent postpone- 
ments of the completion of the work. 
Catawba has also been forced to cancel 
its scheduled match; the southern insti- 
tution was unable to schedule a large 
enough number of matches with north- 
ern schools to make a trip through this 
section profitable. 



Blue And White Nine 
Defeated In Opener 

G-BURG VICTORIOUS, 3-0 



Defending Champions Lose First Game 
Of Campaign in Defense of E. P. 
C. L. Diamond Crown. 



Lebanon Valley's Blue and White dia- 
mond champions were sidetracked by 
Gettysburg's Bullets in the opening 
game of their campaign in defense of the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate League 
crown. The Gettysburg nine, the only 
loop outfit to defeat L.V.C. last season, 
turned in a 3-0 win over the Valleyites 
on Saturday as the defending champs 
were held to two hits by Turney Ecker, 
Bullet pitching discovery. 

Paul Billett, ace Blue and White 
moundman, toed the slab for L.V.C. and 
pitched magnificent ball, permitting the 
G-burgers but five safeties, walking but 
three, and fanning eight. The Lebanon 
Valley twirler served definite notice that 
he will once again he very difficult to 
beat this season; the outstanding peak 
performer during last spring's schedule, 
Billett promises to occupy the top spot 
among the league's twirlers again during 
the current season. 

Despite the able performance of their 
pitching teammate, the Valleyites went 
down in defeat, in the curtain-raiser, 
largely because they were unable to de- 
liver the necessary blows in the pinches. 

The Valley cast was limited to two 
safe blows, both singles, by the able per- 
formance of Ecker, but four other Blue 
and White batsmen manned the runways 
on free tickets and one Bullet misplay 
gave one other Valleyite a position on 
the paths. One or more Flying Dutch- 
men were on base in every inning, but 
when scoring opportunities presented 
themselves, the Lebanon Valley bats be- 



came dolefully silent. Ecker set down 
four of the Valleyites on strikes and 
forced pop-ups and easy infield rollers 
on numerous other occasions. Jonah Da- 
vies and John Tindall, outfielders, ac- 
counted for the brace of hits registered 
off the Bullet twirler. 

The Bullets scored the winning mark- 
ers in the second frame, when they 
pushed a pair of tallies across the plat- 
ter. With one gone, Kitzmiller lined out 
a neat double to left center. "Mooney" 
Morris hit a hard bounder down to sec- 
ond base, Kitzmiller succeeding in beat- 
ing the throw to the third sack and Mor- 
ris also beating Capka's relay to Barto- 
let at first. A passed ball permitted 
Kitzmiller to score, Morris taking sec- 
ond. A single by Sassaman sufficed to 
move the speedy shortstop from the key- 
stone sack across the scoring station 
with the second Bullet run. 

Three singles in the eighth session ac- 
counted for the third G-burg tally. 

A large crowd of fans turned out for 
the battle despite the unseasonal weath- 
er and was treated to a we'l-played con- 
test, despite the fact that the contest 
marked the opening of the campaign for 
both outfits. 

The next game of the league season 
will find the Flying Dutchmen on the 
home grounds with Juniata's Indians as 
the opponents. This home debut of the 
Blue and White is scheduled for Thurs- 
day, April 30.

L Club Holds Dance 
In Gym Last Week 

JACK DRESS' ORCHESTRA 



Philo (Pent House) Hall as Well as 
Alumni Gym Scene of Evening's 
Entertainment. 



The varsity "L" club burst forth in 
their new. sweaters at the dance they 
sponsored Saturday night in the alumni 
gymnasium. Although they had only 
slightly over thirty couples present, they 
presented something novel for those at- 
tending in having an amplifying system 
from the gym to Philo Hall, with the 
loudspeaker furnishing the music for 
those who cared for dancing in the pent 
house. There were cards for those who 
cared to play in the society hall, which 
gave way to emptiness after intermis- 
sion, as everybody was dancing in the 
gym where they could see as well as hear 
the music of Jack Dress and his orches- 
tra. 

The gym was decorated with L. V. 
pennants, but the few floor lamps fur- 
nished the necessary atmosphere for the 
dancers. 

Chaperonage for the dance was repre- 
sented by Dr. and Mrs. S. H. Derickson, 
"Chief" and Mrs. Metoxen, Mrs. Green 
and Mr. and Mrs. P. L. Clements.

The Pennsylvania Academy of Science 
consists of about 450 scientists of this 
state and a few from neighboring re- 
gions. A large part of the membership 
is composed of professors and research 
workers in schools and colleges, al- 
though some lawyers, doctors, teachers, 
and industrial leaders are included. One 
of the most outstanding members is 
former Governor Gifford Pinchot. 

Besides those mentioned above, Leb- 
anon Valley students who are members 
of the Academy are Norman Lazin, Es- 
ther Flom, and Donald Shay. Several 
outstanding L. V. C. alumni also lec- 
tured at the sessions. W. N. Martin of 
Wyomissing High School spoke on 
Adapting Biology to the High School 
Level. Mr. Martin and another alumnus, 
Earl Tshudy, are members of a com- 
mittee on the certification of science 
teachers in Pennsylvania. Willard J. 
Trezise, of Johns Hopkins, also spoke 
at the sessions. 

The next meeting will be held August 
14 and 15 at Negro Mountain, Somerset, 
Pa. Next year they will convene at 
Franklin and Marshall College, Lancas- 



Vines, Stoefen, Lott, and Bell Appear 
In Hershey Park Convention Hall. 

Lebanon Valley College was well rep- 
resented at the professional tennis ex- 
hibition in the Hershey Park Convention 
hall last Saturday night, Coach "Jerry" 
Frock serving as a line judge and four 
members of the L. V. C. net squad, 
Homer Donmoyer, "Hib" Nye, Dick Ax, 
and "Wib" Shroyer, assisting as ball 
boys. 

The pro quartet, consisting of Ells- 
worth Vines, Lester Stoefen, George 
Lott, and Berkeley Bell, treated the 700 
spectators to a dazzling display of rac- 
quet-wielding wizardry. Vines, the pro- 
fessional champion, defeated the tall, 
blond Stoefen in the feature match by 
scores of 7-5, 4-6, 8-6, and 6-3. In the 
preliminary match, Lott, the master- 
mind of tennis, completely blasted Bell 
off the court, the scores 6-3 and 6-2. In 
the doubles competition Vines and Beil 
joined forces to defeat the formidable 
pair of Lott and Stoefen by the scores 
of 6-3 and 6-3. This easy victory for 
Vines and Bell gave the fans a slight 
jolt, as the defeated duo was rated tops 
among the double combinations of the 
amateur tennis world a few years ago 
and is considered virtually invulnerable. 

The Vines-Stoefen match, hard- fought 
from start to finish, particularly cap- 
tivated the audience. Both players art- 
equipped with powerful services and 
vicious deep baseline drives and resort- 
ed to them with amazing consistency. 
In fact, the only edge Vines seemed to 
have was in the consistency rating of the 
two players, Stoefen being erratic at 
crucial moments. 

In the other singles engagement Lott 
lived up to his reputation as a strategist 
by continually maneuvering Bell out of 
position and scoring brilliantly by em- 
ploying a marvelous repertoire of 
strokes to the best advantage. This 
match was not so spectacular as the 
feature match of the evening, but it 
afforded the crowd genuine pleasure to 
watch Lott playing a superbly brainy 
game. 

In the doubles wind-up, this quartet 
of tennis greats paired off and played 
two lightning-fast sets, Vines and Bell 
winning them both without much 



It is surprising the things one finds 
out. For instance, Heber only recently 
leaned across the table and said to us 
confidingly that he is afraid of mice. On 
the other hand, though, some are exas- 
peratingly reluctant, like Mr. Dempsev 
who was, he says, tossed down the stairs 
the other evening. He would not de- 
scribe a single sensation.

You can never tell what's going to 
happen while you're week-ending. We 
personally dashed off, expecting that lit-

this respectably Christian institoosh and 
surprisingly, nothing did. At least, s->

tribution to the 100 .best Sermons, of a 
recent evening, and being caught red-

quent showmanship and decisive ges- 
tures for the intention — which, contrary 
to any ideas of ours on the matter — 
rumor had it that we had of writing a 
critique from our stolen view of the pro- 
ceedings. It was gently intimated that 
the proper and generous thing for us to 
do would be to buy a ticket and attend 
the performance. \v e regretted, how-

us to do that, having already absent-

Mr. Shearer and Miss Smyser, we shall 
have to leave to the tender judgment of 
the theatre-going public. It isn't every-

considered the greatest doubles player 
in American tennis today, could not 
wear down the steadiness of the winning 
team. In this encounter Bell really came 
into his own, bearing the brunt of the 
attack and returning devastatingly every 
one of the many shots that were directed 
at him by Lott and Stoefen.

Wc forgot to tell you about it last 
time, but a lady assures us that she once 
met a practitioner of the black art, and 
that to prove the validity of his claims, 
the chap arranged with the Devil — to 
whom he declared he had sold his soul 
for knowledge of how to accomplish such 
pleasant feats of hocus-pocus — to have 
the leg of an unknown whose name she 
selected at random from a telephone 
book broken by the somewhat non se- 
quitur process of sticking pins in a wax- 
en image. And, sure enough, the lady 
avers, lie did break his leg. 

We broke our leg once, and since this 
story has come out we just feel jittery 
all over because one of the girls who 
write in To Protest a Gross Injustice 
now and then, we happen to know, has 
a pin-cushion in her room. And the 
shivery part of it is that it is just bris- 
tling, my dear Watson, with the prickly 
tilings.

All of which brings us to a discussion 
of Dr. Faustus, the chap who, according 
to Marlowe, was able to make Helen of 
Troy go through a tap routine for his 
exclusive delectation. He sold his soul, 
too, you will remember, but when the 
time came to deliver the goods, the 
bounder wanted to back down. He ob- 
jected, the story goes, to the reputedly 
tropical climate of the Mephistophelian 
domain, which we consider a somewhat 
piffling point to stick over.

lC ° s Outstanding Social Event,

Unusual Favors Promised. 

0n Saturday, May 2, Philokosmian 
A r a ry Society will celebrate the sixty- 
th anniversary of the organization 
\ a dinner-dance at the Yorktown 
Hotel York, Pennsylvania. The York- 
° is known as one of the largest and 
fines t hotels in central Pennsylvania. 
The B i u e Moon Orchestra also of York, 
•ill furnish the music both during the 
Ll and for the dance that will follow. 
' Th is orchestra, which is new to the Leb- 
no n Valley campus, is well known in 
the "southern part of the state. It has 
been playing regularly at the Valencia 
Ballroom in York for several years, 
and has appeared in many radio broad- 
casts over several local stations. 

This will be the first dinner-dance in 
the history of the society. In former 
years a banquet was not a part of the 
anniversary dance. A full course dinner 
will be served at 7:00 P. M. to more 
than fifty couples of Philos, guests, and 
alumni. A large number of the latter 
are expected to return for the event. 
Chaperones for the evening are Dr. and 
Mrs. Clyde A. Lynch, Prof, and Mrs. 
Clark Carmean, and Prof, and Mrs. 
Emerson Metoxen. 
Anniversary President, Jack Glen, 
has worked untiringly to make this 
first dinner-dance a successful affair. He 
was aided in his efforts by society presi- 
dent, Danny Bartolet, and several effi- 
cient committees and committee chair- 
m en. Outstanding society members 
helping in planning the event are Roger 
Saylor, programs ; Ross Sheesley, dance 
committee; Robert Kell, reception com- 
,nit tee; Homer Kendall, favors; and 
Curvin Dellinger, society treasurer. Phi-

Honorary Fraternity 
Holds Annual Banquet 

The second annual banquet for the 
initiation of those elected to membership 
to Phi Alpha Epsilon was held at the 
Harrisburg Civic Club on Wednesday, 
April 22. This organization is composed 
of the honor students of the senior class 
who are selected by the faculty for mem 
bership. 

Following the very nourishing and 
tasteful meal Dr. Stonecipher gave the 
welcoming address to those present. He 
then introduced Dr. Stevenson. Dr. Stev- 
enson in turn introduced the speaker of 
the evening, Dr. William Norcross, Pro- 
fessor of Psychology at Dickinson Col- 
lege. The latter two men had been as- 
sociated previously by taking work to- 
gether in the graduate school of the 
University of Pennsylvania.

Competitive Exams 
Offered On Saturday 

TOTAL BENEFITS INCREASE 



14 Scholarships "Totaling $5600 Of- 
fered to High School Graduates 
from Four States. 



When the annual invasion takes place 
on May Day this year, a hundred or 
more prospective students are expected 
to try their mettle on the scholarship 
examinations which are, as heretofore, 
given in English, American History, 
and an elective. 

However, there is this important dif- 
ference that this year there will be more 
opportunities than in previous years, the 
number of scholarships having been in- 
creased by decreasing the amount of 
each award. This innovation has been 
made because the committee feels that it 
is better to help several than to assist 
only one, since the amount of the schol- 
arships — none of which are worth less 
than $50 — is substantial enough to be the 
deciding factor in the problem faced by 
many of the prospective students when 
they attempt to reckon whether or not 
they can afford to go to college. 

The scholarships which are being 
awarded this year will be as follows : 
one full-tuition ($250 per year), ten of 
$100 per year, and three scholarships 
amounting to $50 dollars per year. The 
last, however will be awarded to day- 
students. 

Provisions for the accomodation and 
entertainment of the young hopefuls will 
be carried out as in other years. 



Final Band Concert 
Engle Hall Tuesday 

FIVE NOVELTY NUMBERS 



Also a Suite, American Sketch, and 
Chorus Numbers Top Program for 
Evening Concert. 



The Men's Band will formally close 
their concert season of the year on Tues- 
day evening. May 5, when they present 
their annual home concert in Engle 
Hall. Prof. Edward P. Rutledge will 
conduct. 

Five concerts have been given this 
season: at Chambersburg, Red Lion, 
Waynesboro, and two in York. The con- 
cert at Chambersburg was attended by 
900 people. An appearance at Ephrata 
on May 1 1 will end the band's concei" 
activities for the year. 

Tuesday evening's presentation will be- 
gin at 8 o'clock in a march, The Foot- 
lifter, by Fillmore. A suite entitled 
Don Quixote, by Safranek, based on the 
story of the same name by Cervantes, 
will follow. The suite is in four parts, 
the first three being characteristic, the 
fourth being somewhat descriptive of 
Don's warlike but sad nature, his quest 
for adventure and his discovery of the 
windmills, his disastrous encounter, and 
his eventual self-confidence in his heroic 
nature. 

Five novelty .numbers will have place 
on the program: a cornet trio, The 
Three Kings, by Smith, played by Earl 
Black; a tenor solo, Homing, by del 
Riego, sung by Stuart Goodman ; the 
sextette from Lucia di Lammermoor, by 
Donizetti; a military escort in five ways, 
arranged by Fillmore from Harold Ben- 
nett's March ; a marimba solo, The 
Whirlwind, by Green, played by Emily 
Kindt. 

A characteristic American sketch, 
Down South, arranged by Myddleton, 
depicts the restless nature of the languid 
Southern darkey. Bolero, by Ravel ; Za-

I. R. C. Elects Officers 



In a special meeting of the Inter- 
national Relations Club, held for the 
purpose of electing officers, the fol- 
lowing students were chosen to head 
the organization for the coming year: 

Calvin Spitler, President; Razelle 
Levitz, Vice President; Emma Mary 
Smyser, Secretary, Treasurer. 

Arrangements were also made for 
an outdoor meeting and dinner. 



Glass Blowers Demonstrate in Chapel 



Students of the College were privileged 
to attend one of the most interesting 
chapel programs of the year, Wednes- 
day, April 22, when Mr. R. M. Howells 
of Union, New Jersey, gave a demon- 
stration of the art of Bohemian glass 
blowing, an art that is fast becoming a 
lost one. Mr. Howells was assisted by 
his wife. 

By the term Bohemian glass blowing 
we may loosely understand the produc- 
tion of novelties such as bird and animal 
figurines as well as the more utilitarian 
manufacture of delicate scientific ap- 



paratus, all without the use of any im- 
plements to shape the molten glass. The 
quality of the product depends entirely 
upon the skill of the blower. The art 
originated in mediaeval Italy where it 
was jealously guarded until its spread 
to Bohemia where the natural beauty of 
the country and the artistic temperament 
of its inhabitants were conducive to its 
stay and development. From thence it 
derives its name. At present the Japa- 
nese, aided by subsidies from the Na- 
tionalist government, are attempting to

Debaters Broadcast 

From WEEU Saturday 

Through the facilities of the Berks 
Broadcasting Company, Lebanon Valley 
College debated last Saturday afternoon 
with Bucknell University. William Clark 
and Calvin Reher made excellent deliv- 
eries of their speeches on the affirmative 
side of the question, "Resolved, That 
Congress be empowered by a two-thirds 
vote to override the decisions of the Su- 
preme Court declaring acts of Congress 
unconstitutional," opposed by C. H. 
Richardson, Jr. and Thomas Leinbach, 
of the Lewisburg college. 

The controversial question was cap- 
ably introduced by William, who called 
to the attention of the radio audience of 
station WEEU that emergency measures 
necessary to progress are being de- 
stroyed because the Supreme Court does 
not permit enactment of bills essential 
under conditions that the founders of 
our national government could hardly be 
expected to have foreseen. 

The first speaker of the negative side 
maintained that the recommended law 
would destroy the power of the Supreme 
Court and the Bill of Rights, leading to 
drastic changes in our present legislative 
and judicial systems. It was declared 
that, by demolishing our system of 
cheeks and balances, Congress would be 
empowered to create a dictator or make 
the president a mere figurehead. 

Calvin Reber pointed out that the af- 
firmative side was not aiming to abolish 
the judicial system, but was making pro-

Clio-Philo To Present 
Clemence Dane Drama 



PHILLIPS IS DIRECTOR 



"A Bill of Divorcement" To Be Pre- 
sented as Annual Stage Production 
of Two Literary Societies. 



"A Bill of Divorcement" will be pre- 
sented tomorrow night at 8 :oo P. M. in 
Engle Hall as a joint production of 
Philo and Clio literary societies. It is 
a three-act play by Clemence Dane 
(Winifred Ashton), first produced in 
England in 1921. It was presented in 
1926 in the United States with Katherine 
Cornell in the leading role. It was 
chosen by the play committee as the most 
suitable available play to be produced 
at this time. 

The theme of the play deals with 
problems of war and insanity. The ac- 
tion takes place in England 15 years 
ago. At the start it is assumed that in- 
sanity is sufficient grounds for divorce; 
an assumption contrary to the present 
laws of England. Hilary Fairfield has 
been shell-shocked in war and has been 
the inmate of an asylum for 15 years. 
He returns to find his wife divorced and 
planning to marry another man. It is at 
this point that the fire-works begin. 

The talented cast is composed of sev- 
eral newcomers to the Lebanon Valley 
stage. They include Theresa Stefan, who 
has the leading feminine role, Lena Ris- 
ser, Robert Tschopp, and John. Trego. 
All, however, have had experience in 
high school and prep school produc- 
tions. The other members in the cast

John Trego Elected 
Junior Prom Leader 

HARRISONIANS TO PLAY 



Plans Completed for Annual Affair 
To Be Held Friday, May 8, In 
Hershey Park Ballroom. 



The anuual spring extravaganza spon- 
sored by the junior class will follow 
years of precedent and remain gorgeous 
but not very extravagant. The success 
of the Prom will as always depend upon 
the school spirit of the student body, 
and if campus gossip may be at all 
taken seriously that enthusiasm needs 
a little boosting in some quarters. 

Be that is it may, here is some good 
news. During the regular Tuesday 
morning chapel period the election of 
the Junior Prom leader was conducted. 
And from a field of four manly pros- 
pects, one chosen by each class, John 
Trego was finally selected to lead the 
promenade. So it will be John who will 
lead us through, the intricate figures of 
that procession of beauty. 

This election completed the prom ar- 
rangements and all indications point to 
a very successful dance. Next to May- 
Day the current topic is Prom-and-who 
is he taking? — or else — what is she wear- 
ing? Surely everybody must be going! 
And why wouldn't they? It will be the 
outstanding event of the spring social 
season, the last big party before the 
student body breaks away from fond ties 
made during the school year and returns 
home. A parting gesture of geniality 
and good will from our campus ; it is 
almost a matter of collegiate honor to 
attend and nobody for any reason will 
pass it up, flagging spirit to the con- 
trary. 

The Hershey Park Ballroom, again the 
scene of festivities, is unusually well fit- 
ted for the occasion. Spacious and at- 
tractive, set in beautiful surroundings. 
For the second successive year this ball- 
room has been redecorated and our Prom 
will again be the inaugural dance. A 
fine orchestra, fair and warmer weather 
— that night is always lovely because the 
Junior class petitions the weather man a 
year ahead of time for moon and stars — 
and the sweetest little girl in the world 
all blended in one gay sparkling picture. 
There is nothing so attractive or so ut- 
terly young and fresh as a college prom. 
How can anybody resist them? 

The lavish promises of a broadcasting 
orchestra aired in a previous issue were 
not unfounded, but met an appalling set- 
back when Elwood Needy canvassed 
the Men's dorm to see how many of the

SENATE PETITIONS 



The Men's Senate has sponsored a 
petition for the renovation of the 
dormitory, and has sent it, along 
with the annual report of the senate's 
activities, to Dr. Lynch, who will 
present it to the proper authorities. 
This action was taken because it is 
felt that the present condition of the 
dormitory is a hazard to the morale 
of the institution. As this feeling for 
the need of renovation is current 
among the residents of the dorm, the 
senate has acted as an intermediary 
between the students and college au- 
thorities in sanctioning this petition.

Growing Up 



Perhaps one of the best fifteen-minute chapel talks that we listened to in a 
long time we were privileged to hear the beginning of this week. The speaker 
pointed out that one of the earmarks of a grown-up man is good behavior. On 
campus this week-end we can demonstrate just how grown-up we actually are. 

A few carping critics insist that all events with any kind of traditional back- 
ground should be forgotten. Doubtless this is true of many of the so-called tradi- 
tional bulwarks. Many sins are covered by the halo tradition. But here and there 
on the calendar appear items of traditional significance which have a positive 
benefit, and of whose importance any diminution would be absolutely unjustifiable. 

Such an event is May Day. It has always been a high spot of Lebanon 
Valley's program until at present it represents an outlay of time and expense and a 
quantity of planning and labor that are truly astounding. The program this year 
promises to be one of the best the campus has ever witnessed. The committees and 
their associates have done an amazing piece of work. All that remains to climax 
the pageant is for everyone to be on his best behavior to give the visitors and 
alumni a real Lebanon Valley College reception. In the meantime pray for fair 
weather.

The northwest entrance to the Admin-

proved by large framed photographs 
representing three famous American in- 
dustries. They show the Signal Hill oil 
field in California, the enormous plant of 
the Anaconda Copper Company at Ana- 
conda, Montana, and the open mine 
workings of the Utah Copper Company 
at Bingham, Utah.

visions to prevent grievous and costly 
mistakes by allowing a necessary nulli- 
fied bill a second chance to become a 
law instead of waiting for the Supreme 
Court to change its mind. He showed 
that nine men, appointed for life and 
being checked only by their consciences, 
do not always view problems from the 
angle of the common taxpayer, while 
Congress is obliged to act according to 
the will of the people for fear of re- 
placement. A law that can override the 
president's veto and the decision of the 
Supreme Court is, he affirmed, necessary. 

In the second Bucknell speaker's ar- 
gument, it was protested that states' 
rights would be violated by Congress- 
men inexperienced in the interpretation 
of the supreme law of the land. Poli- 
ticians would be able to override decis- 
ions of distinguished lawyers who have 
no strings attached to them because they 
are not elected. 

In the rebuttal by the opposition, the 
power of amendment was declared to be 
the people's check upon the Supreme 
Court. The Bucknell speaker presented 
a host of theoretical results of giving 
Congress unrestricted power; voting 
rights might be infringed, a dictatorship 
might be established, religious freedom 
might be denied, and there might be 
complete concentration of government in 
a national unit. The effects of abolishing 
the Supreme Court in other nations were 
cited as examples. i 

Calvin Reber was the rebuttal speaker 
for Lebanon Valley. He analyzed the 
negative points and summarized them as 
being based upon theoretical results of 
the provision. Quite a bit of difference 
exists between what might happen theo- 
retically and what would actually occur. 
Calvin believes that the spirit of our 
government will always prevail because 
the people would rise up in revolt, at 
least with the ballot as a weapon, 
agains un-Amerioan actions. He pointed 
out that amendment is too slow and ex 
pensive, making it necessary to empower 
Congressmen whom we can control at 
the polls. 

Since there were no judges, the Berks 
Broadcasting Company invited the pub- 
lic to address its comments on the broad- 
cast to the radio station.

gain control of the trad-, but hive not 
succeeded. 

A glass blower of forty-three years' ex- 
perience, Mr. Howells was well quali- 
fied to present the subject. Opening his 
demonstration with a few appropriate 
remarks concerning himself and the na- 
ture of his work, he then proceeded to 
give visual proof of his skill, using 
only short lengths of glass tub»r.g and 
the ten converging flames of an alcohol 
blast lamp. He continued his exp'-ma- 
tioi s at intervals throughout the ore- 
gram, although the latter part jf the dis- 
cussion contained considerably more re- 
partee than technology. Glass bubbles, 
the figure of a crane, a Pompeiar. Vase, 
all emerged with seeming ease from 
pieces of common glass tubing. These 
were followed by a clever though un- 
workable reproduction of Hier's steam 
engine, the water hammer, and a Car- 
tesian diver, together with a short dis- 
cussion of air pressure. The program 
was concluded by illustrations of the duc- 
tility and malleability of glass, two of 
the many properties that cause Mr. 
Howells to believe that we shall even- 
tually enter upon an Age of Glass. 

The demonstration has given rise to a 
number of sporadic attempts at glass 
blowing in the physico-chemical labora- 
tories, but due to burnt fingers the re- 
sults as yet have been negligible. 



W. A. A. MAY ACTIVITIES 



Tennis, volley ball, and baseball will

r j. he twilight baseball game at Palmyra 
t Thursday was a typical exhibition 
0jj with brilliant and mediocre play be- 
r-ombined in a totally interesting 

iog 

battle- 

* * * * 

Logan, Palmyra left-fielder, •contrib- 
ted two fielding gems in the semi-pro 
defense. In the first inning, with Capka 
• scoring position at the keystone sack, 
the speedy Palm gardener prevented a 
Lebanon V alley score when he made a 
sensational diving catch of Jonah Da- 
vies' P oke into short left field that 
deemed labelled as a safe hit. 

In the second session Logan's spar- 
ing fielding on Paul Billett's hard 
bounder down the right-field foul line 
he ld the L.V.C. slugger to a single base 
oa the safety, which ordinarily would 
have been good for extra bases. 

j3obby Hahn, shortstop, also fielded 
brilliantly for the Palms, handling nine 
chances without a misplay. Several of 
Hahn's plays were real big-league stuff, 
hard bounders to his right and left be- 
ing fielded with apparent ease. 

In regard to the mediocre attempts of 
the Palms, we need but refer to the 
three errors charged against them, all 
on single chances, to realize that their 
defensive play was far from perfect. 

* * * * 

On the other hand, the Valleyites were 
guilty of but one defensive misplay dur- 
ing the eight innings of play. In the sec- 
ond inning Capka permitted Berman's 
easy roller to pass him, but the error 
did not prove costly, as the Palm run- 
ner was caught in a run-down between 
first and second. 

* • » • 

The prize boner of the day was an 
offensive misplay which does not appear 
in the box score. In the sixth inning ral- 
ly, Paul Billett smacked out a triple 
which counted Davies and Bartolet, 
bringing the count to 5-4, the Palm? 
leading. One was gone at the moment, 
with Patrizio in the third-base coaching 
box and Billett in position to score the 
tying run. Poloniak hoisted as nice a 
run-scoring fly to deep left-center as this 
columnist has seen in his day, with Bil- 
lett fully able to walk from the hot cor- 
ner to home plate and score standing up. 
However, instead of holding his base 
and scoring after the catch, the runner 
dilly-dallied between home and third and 
was finally held on third on the throw-in. 
R alph Billett was out, short to first, to 
form the final putout of the inning, his 
brother being unnecessarily stranded on 
tn e sacks with a run that would have 
deadlocked the count. 

I'he Flying Dutchmen have been put 
through their paces this week in prepar- 
ation for today's game with Juniata, the

°ALM NINE LANDS 6-4 



Rallies in First and Third Innings Give 
Semi-Pros Margin of Victory. 
Hertz' Home Run Features. 



Palmyra's Palms, former perennial 
champions of the Anthracite League and 
present members of the Lebanon Valley 
League, defeated the Blue and White 
nine, 6 to 4, in an interesting twilight 
exhibition tilt at Palmyra last Thurs- 
day. 

The Palms touched the offerings of 
Ralph Billett for three runs in the first 
inning on five solid base blows. The 
Flying Dutchmen came back in the sec- 
ond session with a two-run rally to re- 
vive hopes for a Lebanon Valley College 
victory, but the home team retaliated 
with a brace of tallies in the third frame 
to secure a safe lead of 5-2. 

The Valleyites scored another pair ot 
runs in the sixth and filled the sacks in 
the final inning with none gone but 
could not chase a tying or winning tally 
across the home plate. Palmyra added a 
sixth score to their total in the sixth in- 
ning, bringing the final figures to 6-4, 
favoring the Palmyra outfit. The game 
was called on account of poor visibility 
after L. V. C. had taken a turn at bat to 
open the eighth inning. 

The Palms' opening-inning rally in- 
cluded doubles by Miller and Hahn and 
singles off the bats of Berman, Hertz, 
and Logan, which accounted for three 
runs and an early lead. A single by Kurtz 
and a home-run swat by Al Hertz ac- 
counted for the two runs chalked up by 
the Flying Dutchmen in the third in- 
ning. The chunky Palmyra center- 
fielder caught one of Ralph Billett's of 
fcrings right on the button and walloped 
the horsehide over the right field wall. 

A pair of infield hits and a passed ball 
accounted for the final Palmyra run in 
the sixth session. Tindall, who manned 
the mound for, L. V. C. in the sixth and 
seventh innings, retired the Palms in 
one-two-three order in the seventh. 

A beautiful diving catch by Logan of 
Jonah Davies' outfield fly in the opening 
inning prevented the Valley nine from 
counting in that session. Capka singled 
over second base after Tindall had been 
retired, and took second base on Hertz' 
error. If Davies' swat had gone for a 
hit, Capka doubtless would have crossed 
the plate without difficulty. 

The Flying Dutchmen succeeded in 
scoring in the second session, with a pair 
of tallies bringing them within one run 
of their semi-pro foes. Danny Bartolet 
was safe on Baker's error to open the 
rally. Paul Billett moved him to second 
with a solid single down the third base 
line that might well have gone for extra 
bases had it not been for the excellent 
fielding of Logan, Palmyra left-fielder. 
Both men moved up a base on a passed 
ball and scored on Poloniak's single over 
second base. A pair of fielder's choices 
and an outfield fly put an abrupt ending 
to the L. V. C. rally. 

The Blue and White bats were silent 
for the next two innings, but Tindall 
got a life on a single in the fifth frame, 
oidy to be stranded at the initial sack 
when Hahn took Capka's pop-up for the 
final out of the inning. 

A two-run rally in the sixth inning 
completed the Valley scoring for the day. 
Jonah Davies slapped a double out into 
left field to open the action, with Kroske 
fanning for the initial putout. Bartolet 
beat out an infield hit and both runners 
scored on Paul Billett's triple in right 
field. Poloniak flied out to Logan in 
deep left-center and Ralph Billett was 



White racquet artists. Next week's 
schedule calls for another home match 
on Wednesday with Bucknell and a re- 
turn match at Lancaster with the F. & 



out, Hahn to Doremus, to end the in- 
ning. 

L. V. C. went down one-two-three in 
the next inning, but had a real chance 
to tuck away the ball game in the 
eighth. Jonah Davies, first batsman, 
poked out his second double of the day, 
Kroske drew a base on balls, and Muto's 
error on Bartolet's swat filled the bases 
with none gone. Here the Blue and 
White rally was nipped in the bud by 
"Snowball" Klepper, Palmyra mound- 
man. Paul Billett and Poloniak both 
took an impotent squint at a called third 
strike and Ralph Billett was forced to 
hoist an easy chance to Berman in right 
field for the final out of the inning.

Racqueteers Shut Out 
Foes In Net Openers 

LAND TWO MATCHES 7-0 



Susquehanna and Elizabethtown Sub- 
dued as Netmen Drop One Set in 
Two Matches. 



Lebanon Valley's netmen opened the 
season in sensational fashion by winning 
their first two matches with the loss of 
but one set. 

In the curtain-raiser Saturday at Sel- 
insgrove, the racqueteers subdued the 
Susquehanna netmen by a wide margin, 
the Crusaders winning only eleven games 
in the fourteen sets required to complete 
the match. Eight sets during the brief 
play were won at love by the L. V. C. 
court representatives, and the best show- 
ing of any of the Susquehannans was 
represented by a three-margin game 
score in two of the sets. 

Homer Donmoyer, Dick Ax, "Hib" 
Nye, Eugene Shenk, and Phil De Huff 
lined up in the singles encounters in the 
order named, and the teams of Don- 
moyer and Ax and Nye and Shenk com- 
peted in the doubles play. All of the 
seven matches in the intercollegiate 
opener went to L. V. C. without any dif- 
ficulty. 

On Monday the racqueteers experi- 
enced a bit more trouble when they 
journeyed to Elizabethtown, but once 
again they emerged victorious by a 7-0 
count. 

The team lined up in the same order 
in the singles competition, but De Huff 
teamed up with Shenk to form the sec- 
ond tandem team. Donmoyer dropped 
one set to Schlosser, E-town first man, 
but the remaining six matches went to 
the Blue and White courtsters in straight 
sets.

Another departure will be, instead of 
the band, a piano and siring sextet as 
accompaniment for the dances. There 
will be also a vocal solo and a vocal 
trio. Will they be heard remains the 
question. Other Schools, it is said, find 
such accompaniment very effective. If 
necessary, an amplifier will be used.

Dr. Wagner Plans To 

Resume Teaching 

In an interesting interview following 
his return from Temple University Hos- 
pital last Friday, Dr. Paul Wagner stat- 
ed that he has nothing to do but have a 
good time getting well. 

Dr. Wagner was very sincere and lib- 
eral in his praises of Dr. Temple Fay, 
the eminent brain surgeon. He described 
Dr. Fay as "a man confident in his pow- 
er and knowledge; a man who could in- 
spire others witli his confidence." After 
eight years Dr. Fay was able to succeed 
in a case which other surgeons had con- 
sidered hopeless and inoperable. Dr. Fay 
uesd a new method in removing a tumor 
of 20 years' growth from Dr. Wagner's 
skull. The inner, calcified part was first 
removed; then the rest, layer by layer. 
For ten days his skull was x-rayed. Dr. 
Fay admitted that he had removed por- 
tions of the brain, which, according to 
textbooks, would make speech impossi- 
ble. But Dr. Wagner plainly testified 
that he can speak much better than for- 
merly, although he realizes his speech 
and thoughts are sometimes incoherent. 

Dr. Wagner said that his greatest 
pleasure in the course of a day is to 
drink the 16 ounces of water allotted to 
him. He explained that a larger amount 
of water would exert too great pressure 
on his brain. 

Dr. Wagner waj \ery eager to know 
what is happening on our campus and 
seemed rather surpiised to learn that 
May Day is so near. He expects to get 
in touch with college affairs once more, 
and, after a quiet vacation, he says, his 
greatest joy will be the fact that he can 
be back teaching in the fall.

Campus Cuts 



The buds were budding and the flow- 
ers were blooming and the grass was 
hysterically growing and the half-pint 
piano out on the campus was clanking 
out the measures of the Minuet last Fri- 
day afternoon. May Day Rehearsal. 
Some dozen or so "Colonial American 
boys and girls were displaying all the 
courtliness of elegant manners" for all 
they were worth. The pirouetting, dain- 
ty pointing of the toe, etc., were utterly 
elegant. In the midst of this, a promi- 
nent member of our La Vie staff came 
ambling across the path toward the 
Men's Dorm. The member paused short- 
ly, drank in the proceedings, and then 
barked, "Swing it !" Colonial American 
Speg pointed his toe more gracefully 
than ever.

Hey, Mr. Silvers! Tammany Hall in 
New York could use your services in the 
next Mayoralty election. The Freshman 
Class held a meeting the other day to 
elect their nominee for Prom Leader. 
Sixteen members were present. (Hold 
it ! . . . this is not a writeup; we improve 
as we go on.) When the votes for Ken 
Eastland were tabulated, you may pic- 
ture the startled counter-upper's cha- 
grin when he totalled thirty-nine votes 
. . . twenty-four of which were X-ed in 
Silver's fine Spencerian X. When better 
ballot boxes are stuffed. . . .

We have unearthed a very rare and 
exclusive society lately formed on this 
campus. The stage crew for the Philo- 
Clio Play has organized as the Geep 
Fraternity, an organization composed 
entirely of Vice-Presidents. Mr. Schmidt, 
in an interview, informed us that qualifi- 
cations for membership include "being 
able to construct a Norwegian fireplace 
out of oak, with fifty cuss-words as a 
maximum." You figure it out for us. 
Personally, we're going to go home and 
do pastoral dances.

John Trego and Hal Phillips quite 
modestly admit that they consider them- 
selves the best bridge players (Auction) 
on the campus. The duo of blushing 
violets would like to challenge the two 
best players in North Hall. (). K., gals 
... go get 'em ! And we hope you trim 
the . . . er . . . the ears off them !

Did everyone notice the masculine bro- 
gans visible under the stage curtains 
during the glass-blowers' exhibition last 
week? And the amazing way in which 
the legs disappeared when Mr. Howell 
headed backstage to secure a victim to 
demonstrate his "lung-tester"? After the 
show, the lung-tester was given to Dr. 
Lynch as a souvenir. Dr. Lynch was 
more successful in securing volunteers. 
Miss Oleta Dietrich and Lester Krone, 
present in the after-the-show crowd 
backstage, both blew lustily into the lit- 
tle water-filled glass swan. The swan, a 
mean animal in its calmest moods, coun- 
tered by squirting a fine stream of aqua 
into their respective eyeballs! Laugh?

playing in the fifth spot, was the other 
Blue and White courts'.er who turned ir

A Bill of Divorcement' 
Produced by Clio-Philo 

H AROLD PHILLIPS DIRECTS 

JVlcKeag, Stefan and Tschop Take 
Leads in Clemence Dane Drama 
presented by Joint Societies. 

By Robert H. Spohn 



Message To L. V. C. Alumni 



FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE 



Xo speak depreciatingly of a play 
w hich in the opinion of the audience who 
saW it was an unquestionable success is 
just as dangerous as to question the 
greatness of a popular poet such as 
Vachel Lindsay. Any form of art is 
supreme largely in the measure in which 
it finds an appeal or response in its 
patronage. For this reason this column 
finds it difficult to record its impressions 
of A Bill of Divorcement as presented 
by the Clio-Philo players, Friday even- 
ing. But the reviewer is delegated to 
deliver his own impressions even if the 
delivery be disagreeable to him as well 
as unsympathetic to audience reaction. 

A Bill of Divorcement, to grasp the 
bull by the horns, was a play with ex- 
cellencies and with faults. Its chief ex- 
cellency was its admirable technical work. 
Both sets were imaginative. The simpli- 
city of the second act scene with the 
"cave window" and the Norwegian fire- 
place represented thoughtful and careful 
construction work. 

A second commendable point was the 
creditable acting of three members of 
the cast: Robert Tschop, Jean McKeag 
and Curvin Thompson. They were not 
faultless but they were considerably the 
most effective players. Tschop's role as 
'he insane husband was not particularly 
difficult to make impressive because of 
* verbal fireworks, but now and then he 
chanced it by really creative touches. 
Jean McKeag's habit of invariably us- 
ln S "clipped speech," with resultant 
Monotony, is her most serious handicap, 
tot she was throughout the dynamic 
character, setting the pace and shouldei - 
,n S the movement. 

Thompson is certainly a talented char- 
acter ac tor. He brings with him upon the 
Stage { hat indefinable air of the character 
Perfect harmony with his surround- 
ln S s . and at the same time evinces a 
" atur al flair for comedy.

The President of your Alma Mater 
appreciates this opportunity afforded by 
La Vie Coi.lkgienne to extend personal 
greetings to his fellozu alumni. One of 
the rich privileges of my administrative 
functions is to have so many occasions 
of contacting the living prodtucts of Leb- 
anon Valley College. Wherever I travel, 
there I feel at home; for graduates of 
this institution in increasing numbers 
have gone out to serve humanity in all 
parts of the world. It is always our great 
joy to welcome to the campus alwmni 
who like to renew old associations and 
to observe the marks of a progressing 



college. Faculty members and students 
alike have been pleased to welcome out- 
standing alumni to our chapel services. 
Dr. C. W. Shoop, '08, of Canton, China, 
recently gave one cf the best addresses 
we have heard on modern conditions in 
China. Other graduates keep in touch 
with the president by mail. United States 
District Judge Seba C. Huber, '92, of 
Honolulu, is very much interested in ar- 
ranging for the reunion of his class. The 
College will grant the degree of LL.D., 
in absentia, to this distinguished alum- 
nus at the coming commencement.

Net Team Drops Match 
To Diplomat Racquetmen 

Lebanon Valley's court representatives 
met defeat for the second time this sea- 
son in the May Day clash against a 
strong racquet crew from Franklin and 
Marshall. The Blue and White netmen 
were able to annex only two of the nine 
matches on the card, "Wib" Shroyer 
landing his singles encounter and Um- 
berger and DeHuff winning their tandem 
match. 

Homer Donmoyer, the Blue and White 
ace, was defeated for the first time this 
season by Garland, who played a super- 
lative brand of tennis in winning, 6-0, 
6-2. In addition to the racquetmen al- 
ready mentioned, Ax and Shenk also ap- 
peared against the Diplomats. 

The L.V.C. court outfit faces a busy 
schedule this week, with matches carded 
for May 6 to 9 inclusive. Wednesday 
the netmen will oppose Bucknell on the 
Annville courts. Thursday will find the 
racquetmen seeking revenge from F. & 
M. at Lancaster, Friday the team will 
travel to Reading for the first of two

105 Prospective Students Appear for 
Annual Competition for Awards 
Totaling $5600. 



The department of education is not 
yet prepared to divulge any information 
concerning the results of the annual 
competitive scholarship examinations 
which were taken last Saturday by 105 
prospective students, since, as this issue 
reaches the press, the total number of 
test-papers thus far corrected has not 
been sufficient to be of any use in form-

These examinations were instituted 
three years ago instead of the method 
of awarding scholarships in use at this 
college until that time, that is, largely on 
the basis of recommendations made by 
high school principals. 

Those who took the test are as fol-

Chemists Return From 
Extensive Field Trip 



TWENTY STUDENTS TOUR 



Itinerary Includes Corning Glass 
Works, Eastman Kodak Company 
And Niagara Falls. 



Monday morning at six o'clock a cara- 
van of four cars carrying twenty chem- 
ists from the college left for a trip to 
New York State to see some of their 
theory in practice. 

The party first visited the Corning 
Glass Works, where the manufacture of 
all types of Pyrex glass was observed 
Of special interest was the production 
of thermometer tubing and the opera- 
tion of automatic machinery into which 
flowed molten glass and from which is- 
sued a rapid succession of finished ar 
tides. 

Many interesting sidelights concern, 
ing the manufacture of optical, marine 
and laboratory ware were noted — too 
many tc enumerate. 

Leaving Corning, the party proceeded 
to Rochester where the main object was 
the Eastman Kodak works. Here was 
viewed the manufacture from pulp of 
the special paper used in photographic 
film and the many operations that go in- 
to the making of photographic supplies. 

The immensity of the plant (85,000 
people are employed), the high degree 
of skill required in operation, and the 
peculiar processes involved make this a 
unique American establishment. 

Monday night an interesting side trip 
to Niagara Falls was taken by those 
who had never before seen that pheno- 
menon of nature. The University of 
Rochester was also visited. 

The party reached Annville in the wee 
hours of Wednesday morning delighted 
with the trip and the courtesies extended 
to them by the officials of two very inter- 
esting manufacturing industries.

Claude Felty, the Lions' ace, hooked up 
in a sterling pitchers' duel, the former 
allowing only six bingles, 1 fanning six 
batters, and walking three, and the lat- 
ter giving away seven swats, setting 
down twelve batters on strikes, and pass- 
ing two. Tindall also contributed to his 
own cause a three-base hit, which was 
subsequently converted into a score. 

Other features of the game were a

Billett, and the sparkling fielding of

Thousands Witness 
Brilliant May Day 

LOUISE GILLAN MAY QUEEN 



Juniors Wind Traditional May Pole 
In Untraditional Manner. Fine 
Weather Climaxes Festival. 



Beneath the radiant skies Lebanon 
Valley College held its May Day. The 
day was a special gift of the weather 
man : clear blue sky, brilliant sun, warm 
air, soft breezes. The campus was 
greener than ever before; the shade of 
the trees was cooler. It was a perfect 
May Day. 

Stirring music was played by the girl*' 
band in their natty blue and white uni- 
forms. Right on the stroke of two as 
was promised, the roll of distant drums 
was heard. At a brisk pace the Lebanon 
Valley College men's band marched into 
view and took its place. Slowly the pro- 
cession moved. The Maypole dancers in 
their cool or gowns and the boys in blue 
serge coats and white trousers, the heralds, 
the stately maid of honor in yellow lace 
and her dainty little girls, and then the 
Queen, beautiful in white lace. The two 
little pages seemed to sense the im- 
portance of the occasion and carried the 
Queen's train with dignity and a feeling 
of superiority. Following the Queen 
walked the six maids of honor in gowns 
of blue and pink lace. The performance 
of the nations passed before the public 
in slow dignity despite the calls and re- 
marks of admiring parents and friends. 

The real originality of the freshman 
class was shown as their president, Rob- 
ert Tschop dressed as an Indian pre- 
sented the footstool of daisies to the 
queen. An impudent gust of wind, a 
small briar and a straight pin, did not 
prevent the Spirit of Olympiad from 
making her "figure of eights". 

The unusual voice of Rose Tschopp 
caused many comments. Despite the 
handicap of singing through a micro- 
phone which produced a harsh grating 
sound, the still beautiful, belllike quality 
added to the wistful Japanese flirtation. 
"That girl can sing." 

The first public appearance of Jean 
McKeag, a dancer of wild grace and 
abandon, brought new honors to the 
most talented coed of Lebanon Valley. 

As the experienced vocal trio, Helen 
Summy, Gayle Mountz, and Charlotte 
Stabley softly crooned "When Irish Eyes 
Are Smiling" a troupe of gay "Oirish" 
maids strolled out on to the stage. They 
danced the lilt, and with such a deter- 
mined lilt that even the "Oirish" could 
believe. 

Stolidly the Indians came into view; 
stolidly they formed a circle; stolidly

To The Alumni 



This special edition of La Vie brings to the attention of the Alumni of Leb- 
anon Valley College the most important events planned For Commencement 
Week. Since this will be the only official notice of the Commencement Week ac- 
tivities that you alumni will receive we advise you to save this copy. 

The revival of interest of the Alumni in their Alma Mater is evinced by the 
growing activity among the various alumnal groups. The prospective students 
who visited the campus on May Day are proof of this growing interest. The 
Alumni are interested in their Alma Mater ar.d are doing more now than ever to 
bring Lebanon Valley College to the attention of prospective students. Keep up 
the good work ! 

The program arranged for you during Commencement Week promises tc 
be one of extreme interest and benefit — the assembly,, reception, banquet, and 
reunions. Plan to attend all these events and meet your old friends. 

La Vie also wishes to thank all those who have aided in this Special Edition, 
especially Mr. L. P. Clements, Dr. H. H. Shenk, and Mr. David K. Shrpyer, who 
have compiled many of the news articles pertaining to the Alumni. . 



Message To L. V. C. Alumni 



{Continued From Page i) 



It is always gratifying to establish 
closer contacts with those alumni who 
now have sons and daughters in Leba- 
non Valley College. It doesn't seem very 
long ago when we sang about those anti- 
cipated babies on our knees, promising 
far in advance to "teach them that the 
alphabet begins with L.V.C." Your pres- 
ident is proud to have his daughter here 
as a Junior; next year his son will be a 
Freshman. This means that I have more 
than an official relation to this institu- 
tion. I am a father who wants the kind 
of college that will best prepare my chil- 
dren for their careers. When you send 
your children here, I know that you feel 
just as I do — you expect them to have 
access to facilities that are superior to 
those which ministered to our needs when 
we were students here. While we ac~ 
knowledge our deficiencies, it cannot be 
denied that, since our undergraduate 
days, Lebanon Valley College has made 
rapid progress. You can accelerate this 
forward movement by sending your own 
boys and girls to Annville for their 
higher education. 

Teachers and ministers have an unus- 
ual opportunity of interesting high- 
school seniors in Lebanon Valley Col- 



lege. Alumni who serve in these exalted 
professions should not be less zealous 
than the alumni of other colleges in soli- 
citing high-grade students and in ac- 
quainting the college office with the data 
that we need in dealing effectively with 
prospects. In a number of competing 
colleges alumni have sponsored caravans 
from their respective communities 10 
their several colleges on the occasion of 
sub-freshman day programs. We were 
pleased to observe the cooperation mani- 
fested by some of our own alumni on 
May 2, when high-school seniors were 
brought or sent here for the competitive 
scholarship examinations and the festi- 
vities of a most glorious May Day. 
Many communities are witnessing the 
organization of various college clubs. 
Some of these clubs meet weekly; others 
meet monthly or quarterly, depending on 
the amount of intere t and the number 
of alumni available for such clubs. Leb- 
anon Valley alumni in every sizable com- 
munity should organize similar clubs for 
the promotion of fellowship, the stimu- 
lation of college loyalty, and the solici- 
tation of prospective students. 

While we are always ready to grant 
scholarships and other forms of student 
aid to worthy students, there is a limit 
beyond which the college cannot go with- 
out jeopardizing its financial soundness. 
No institution can make sustained prog- 
ress without an adequate income. In oth- 



er words, we must have more students 
who are able to meet their accounts 
promptly and fully. Unfortunately, there 
are those of our friends who never bring 
the college and students together unless 
special consideration is sought. What 
we need is the same interest evinced 
with reference to prospective students 
who are able to finance their college ed- 
ucation, or who can arrange to do so 
without asking the college to assume a 
burdensome responsibility. Education is 
costly, and parents should not be en- 
couraged to penalize the college by in- 
sisting on concessions that are requested 
because their private income, used for 
other purposes, was not conserved and 
applied to a more worthy enterprise. 
Our government itself is promoting the? 
pauperizing of many of our citizens and 
their children. The colleges are becom- 
ing alarmed at the apparent lack of any 
financial responsibility on the part of 
students and their parents. Neverthe- 
less, there will always be occasion for 
the subsidizing of poor but worthy stu- 
dents. Can we not reasonably ask our 
alumni who ask the college to make con- 
cessions to share with the college in 
making the sacrifices necessary to admit 
and continue indigent students? Per- 
sonal and club scholarships and desig- 
nated contributions to the alumni giving 
fund will provide gifts and loans to a 
limited number of deserving students. 
This will prevent further cuts in faculty 
salaries and the continued postponement 
of much-needed and long-awaited plant 
additions and improvements. 

The growing idea and practice of the 
totalitarian state should challenge every 
alumnus of the Liberal Arts College. 
The president of a State Teachers Col- 
lege recently asserted that, since educa- 
tion is the function of the state, the 
preparation of teachers who are to teach 
in our public schools is also the function 
of the state. There is no doubt concern- 
ing the efforts of those who have their 
bread and butter provided at the already 
over-burdened tax-payers' expense to 
crowd the liberal arts colleges to the 
wall. But we believe that there is room 
in this Commonwealth for both types of 
educational institutions. While there are 
extremists on both sides of the burning 
issue, not a few presidents of liberal arts 
and state teachers colleges are cooper- 
ating to provide a proper division of la- 
bor in the field of teacher preparation. 
We are urging our alumni to be alert 
and politically-minded and active when 
any measure is proposed that will work 
an unjustifiable hardship on the liberal 
arts colleges of Pennsylvania. It is sin- 
cerely hoped that the battle for intellect- 
ual and religious freedom will not have 
to be fought all over again. Without 
prejudice or malice with reference to 
other types of institutions let every 
alumnus of our college give his full 
measure of support to the kind of insti- 
tution that provides a broad cultural 
foundation and social freedom of thougnt 
for its teachers in preparation, as well 
as for all others who leave this campus 
to combine Christian character and 
idealism with proficiency in service in 
those professions that minister to our 
human needs, comforts, and enjoyments. 

Let me extend to you and your family 
an urgent invitation to attend all our 
commencement exercises. Mrs. Lynch and 
I shall be happy indeed to greet you in 
our home on the afternoon of Saturday, 
June 6. These alumni receptions are oc- 
casions of happy reunions and delight- 
ful fellowship. Light refreshments wdl 
be served to keep you going until the 
more substantial alumni banquet, which 
is to be served at IIer,hey in the even- 
ing. Come back and have a real good 
time. Live over the scenes of other 
years, and project yourself with other 
faithful alumni into a more auspicious 
future for our beloved Alma Mater. 

Clyde A. Lynch.

jUNIATA 

'jVelve Men Face Foes in First Frame 
^ s L. V. C. Nine Scores Six Runs 
And Coasts to Triumph. 

Lebanon Valley's diamond aggregation 

re gistered its first win in Eastern Penn- 

-lvania Collegiate League Competition 

- S o crrewy ball game played on the home 
in » 3 

loam l ast Thursday afternoon. Final 
score: L. V. C. 8; Juniata 5- 

The Flying Dutchmen counted an 
verr half dozen tallies in the first ses- 
sion, added two more in the second, and 
were subsequently held scoreless for the 
last six frames. On the other hand, the 
Indians failed to dent the home plate un- 
til the fourth, counting one run in that 
inning and adding four more in the next 
session, only to find themselves again 
throttled during the closing four innings. 

In L.V.C.'s big inning, the first, twelve 
batsmen faced two Indian hurlers. Nine 
of these Flying Dutchmen reached first 
base and six of them counted tallies. 
Singles by Tindall and Poloniak, a triple 
by Bartolet, four bases on balls, two hit. 
batsmen, a wild pitch, a pair of passed 
balls, and two stolen bases contributed 
to the Blue and White run parade. 

The Valleyites began where they had 
ceased the first inning bombardment 
when they came to bat in the second 
frame. In that session two hits, three 
passes, and a Juniata outfield error com- 
bined to account for two runs and leave 
the bases jammed with two gone when 
Seiders was called to mound service for 
the Indians. This twirler, the third 
employed by the opponents, forced Cap- 
ka to pop up to Kunsman to end the in- 
ning, and he held the L. V. C. cast to 
three well-scattered safeties during the 
rest of the action. 

Juniata counted an unearned run in 
the second when Poloniak's two-base er- 
ror past second base permitted Jenkins 
to count after an attempted steal of sec- 
ond. The four runs chalked up by the 
league foes in their big fifth were the 
result of four solid blows and a well- 
played double steal. 

Paul Billett allowed but seven hits 
in blanking the Indians during seven in- 
nings of the tussle and had the foes well 
under control during the action with the 
exception of the fourth and fifth frames. 
The L. V. C. ace fanned nine and walked 
out one while the Juniata heavers fanned 
SIX and passed twelve Dutchmen to the 
initial sack.

they skipped in a circle. And then cries 
were heard from the bleachers. "Look 
at that one Indian's red, white, and blue 
socks. He must be an American In- 
dian." The horsemanship of tiny Yvonne 
Metoxen was shown before the pageant. 
Her pony, frightened by the rumble of 
drums, reared and jumped. Unfright- 
ened, Yvonne calmly pulled the reins, 
and pale-faced John Walmer finally 
quieted the little horse. 

The most outstanding feature of the 
program was the successful winding of 
the Maypole. The fact that one set of 
ribbons, remember r, were whole strips 
of material, never daunted the 1937 May> 
pole gavotters. And the laurel wreath 
goes to the Junior class, the Maypole 
dancers who triumphantly wound the 
Maypole, and thus happily terminated 
another May Day festival. 

Too much praise and commendation 
cannot be given to Miss Henderson who 
single-handed planned and directed the 
program and the dances. Her sympa- 
thetic, understanding manner won he r 
the hearty cooperation of the entire fa- 
culty and student body. Even the design- 
ing and the making of the costumes 
were under her supervision. The 1936 
Lebanon Valley College May Day was 
accomplished without the supervision of 
any outside direction. To you, Miss Hen- 
derson, the students and faculty of Leb- 
anon Valley College join in extending 
their appreciation.

Capka, the L. V. C. shortstop, who, 
grabbing everything within reach, han- 
dled six difficult chances flawlessly. 

The Lions opened the game with a 
run. holding the lead until the second 
inning, when Coach Metoxen's minions 
evened the count. The Valleyites then 
went ahead in the third with a one-run 
advantage, adding another tally in the 
fifth. In the sixth Albright pushed her 
second, and last run across the platter, 
but L. V. C. came right back in the 
seventh to sew up the game with two 
runs, raising the score to 5-2. 

In the invading team's half of the 
initial inning Trexler, who had singled 
to center, was driven across the penta- 
gon by Riffle's scorching triple into the 
same garden. After being set down in 
order in the first inning, the Blue and 
White tabled in the second with Jonah 
Davies' single to center, followed by a 1 
double off the bludgeon of TTal Kroske. 
In the next canto, while the visitors 
were being held hitless, Ralph Billett 
made himself conspicuous by smiting a 
prodigious homer into right field. 

In the sixth the Dutchmen scored 
again on a triple into right by Tindall 
and a single into left by Danny Bartolet 
—the Annville collegians were making 
every hit count. When Coach Hino's 
charges again took their turn at the 
plate, Trexler was given a free pass to 
first, and with the aid of a stolen base, 
and a sacrifice fly by Riffle into center, 
he brought in his second run of tin's day. 
A few moments later the home team put 
the game safely away on the shelf with 
a two-run eruption made possible by 
Capka's single, a walk to Tindall, and a 
weird throw from the hand of Feltv 
over the second baseman's head in an 
attempt to catch Tindall on a steal. 

In the eighth inning the Red and 
White roused out of their lethargy and 
filled the bases. Tindall then arose to 
the occasion, and with two men out, 
struck out Choborda to write an exciting- 
finis to the promising Lion rally.

The well-conceived plans of Anniver- 
sary President Jack Glen and his as- 
sistants, culminated Saturday evening, 
May 2, in the Philo Anniversary dinner- 
dance at the Hotel Yorktowne in York. 
The affair provided a fitting conclusion 
to what had been a long and colorful

ballroom of the hotel, where the Blue 
Moon Orchestra provided delightful mu- 
sic throughout the entire evening. 

The committees which aided in mak- 
ing the affair a most successful one 
were: Homer Kendall, Favors; Roger 
Saylor, Program; Ross Sheesley, Ken- 
neth Eastland, and Robert Kell, Place. 
Favors consisted of attractive gold com-

ELIAS HERSHEY SNEATH 
Since the publication of the last Alum- 
ni issue of La Vie, the Lebanon Valley 
College Alumni suffered the loss by 
death of one of the most distinguished 
members, Dr. Elias Hershey Sneath, 
professor emeritus of Philosophy and 
Religion in Yale University. 

Dr. Sneath was born in Mountville, 
Pa., August 7, 1857. He received his 
A.B. degree from Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege in 1881 and his Masters degree in 
1885. Entering Yale Divinity School af- 
ter graduation from Lebanon Valley, 
he was graduated in 1884 with the de- 
gree of B.D. He then continued his work 
in the graduate school and received his 
doctorate of Philosophy degree in 1889. 

He was successively Lecturer on His- 
tory of Philosophy, 1889-1891; instruc- 
tor in philosophy, 1891-1893; assistant 
professor, 1893-1898; professor, 1898; 
professor philosophy and religion, 1912; 
professor emeritus, 1923. In 1903 he de- 
livered the commencement address at 
Lebanon Valley College, at which time 
he was awarded the degree of Doctor 
of Laws. His last appearance at the 
college was on the occasion of the inau- 
guration of President Lynch in June, 
1933, when he addressed the Alumni and 
received the degree of Doctor of Litera- 
ture. 

Dr. Sneath was a voluminous writer 
and editor of wide reputation, as is evi- 
denced by the following list of publica- 
tions written or edited by him. The Phi- 
losophical Series, for use in college class- 
es in Philosophy, which include the fol- 
lowing: The Philosophy of Descartes, 
The Philosophy of Spinoza, The Philoso- 
phy of Locke, The Philosophy of Hume, 
and The Philosophy of Reid. 

Dr. Sneath also edited The Ethical Se- 
ries, for use in classes in ethics, consist- 
ing of The Ethics of Hobbes, The Ethics 
of Hume, and The Ethics of Kant. 

The books written by Dr. Sneath in- 
clude the following: The Mind of Ten- 
nyson, 1900, (translated into Japanese). 
The Philosophy of Poetry, 1904; Words, 
worth, Poet of Nature and Man, 1912; 
joint author with Dean Hodges and E. 
L. Stevens in The Golden Rule Series, 6 
books, 1913; with Dean Hodges in The 
Manual of Moral Instruction for School 
and Home, 1913, with Dean Hodges and 
Professor Tweedy in The King'i High- 
way Series, 8 books, 1917; Religion* 
Training in the School and Ho-Mfi, 1917. 
Shall We Have a Creed? 1925, (a re- 
view of the arguments for and against 
a creed with a decision in favrr of a 
simple creed containing the funJamen- 
tals of the Christian faith). 

Editor of Religion and the War, ±918, 
(a composite volume consisting of con- 
tributions by members of the faculty of 
Yale University School) ; organizer and 
editor of the Great Leaders Series; 
Handbooks for Moral and Religious Ed- 
ucation Series; Religious Science and 
Literature Series. A composite volume, 
At One with the Invisible, 1921; a com- 
posite volume, Religion and the Future

Notice 



The Field Secretary is compiling 
a separate list of Alumni who are 
engaged in teaching. Letters have 
been sent to those residing in Penn- 
sylvania and nearby states asking 
for names of outstanding high school 
students interested in going to col- 
lege. Partly as a result of the co- 
operation from the graduates, the 
number of prospective students tak- 
ing the scholarship examinations in- 
creased nearly twenty-five per cent 
over last year. The Field Secretary 
is planning for closer contacts with 
this large group of Alumni in the 
future.

Shea, and H. E. Cogswell in The Songs 
of Purpose, 3 books, 1929; A Child's 
Garden of Song, 1929; and Religion as «

Dr. Sneath was married on June 19, 
1890, to Anna S. Camp, of Middletown, 
Connecticut. Mrs. Sneath and two sons 
and a daughter, Herbert C, Katherine 
Williams, and Richard Sheldon, survive. 



'A Bill of Divorcement" 

Produced Bv Clio-Philo 



(Continued From Page i) 



ing. Kenneth Eastland lacked voice and 
stage presence; Theresa Stefan was the 
bathos of pathos ; and John Trego was 
clearly out of control. 

But, worst of all, the play lacked com- 
pletely what is known in the theater as 
"moments" — the spasms of suspense 
which lift the onlooker out of himself, 
that stir him with that sudden intoxica- 
tion which is the vital element of drama. 
It may be objected that such emotion 
can not be forged by the amateur. That 
is not so. Think of last year's play, 
Children of the Moon. 

Not to lay all the blame upon the act- 
ors, it must be pointed out that a very 
evident weakness of the play was in lack 
of direction or perhaps in failure of the 
players to respond to it. To cite a few 
instances from the first act: an inor- 
dinately long wait while the maid cleared 
the breakfast table; failure of Mar- 
garet to respond to the gift of a fur; 
failure of Margaret to respond to the 
unexpected meeting with her mentally 
deficient husband ; Kit entering a rear 
dor with a fixed look upon a side door 
to see who was exiting; movement dur- 
ing speeches (which continued through- 
out the play).— This is not irritability 
vented upon details themselves but rather 
upon details which determine total ef- 
fect. 

Actors are often heard to complain 
that they can't get into their part when 
the real trouble is that they do not al- 
low the part to get into them. This lat- 
ter faculty obviates the occurrence of 
such errors as above mentioned. It was 
noticeably lacking Friday evening. 

The play being so well known, es- 
pecially as the movie version, a discus- 
sion of plot is unnecessary. Suffice it to 
say that the significance to a college 
audience of a drama advocating, re- 
form of English divorce laws is doubt- 
ful. Divorce in situations as presented here 
is no longer odious to the intelligent youth 
of today with its customary healthy atti- 
tude toward social problems. In the light 
of pure entertainment, A Bill of Divorce- 
ment is assuredly not the most exciting 
of plays. May we suggest to those who 
collaborate in the choice of next year's 
campus productions that they choose 
carefully with a thought to audience and 
to occasion. The theater is a magnifi- 
cent thing and it can produce an ineffa- 
ble grandeur in those who love it. Fos- 
ter it so that it will. 



Conserve Doings 

The Glee Club under the direction of 
Prof. E. P. Rutledge will sing at Car- 
lisle Sunday evening at 7.30 o'clock as 
half of an exchange feature with the 
Dickinson Women's Choral Club. The 
Dickinson group will return the engage- 
ment here on Sunday, May 17, at 8.15 
o'clock in the conservatory auditorium. 

On Wednesday evening the club took 
part in the annual Hershey Festival con- 
ducted by Dr. John Finley Williamson 
and Dr. Harry A. Sykes in the Commu- 
nity Theatre. They sang "Lo, a voice 
to heaven sounding", by Bortniansky, 
and "Onward Christian Soldiers", ar- 
ranged by Sullivan-Nilson, as their part 
of the program. They and the four other 
Westminster-affiliated choirs of this sec- 
tion, Trinity Lutheran and First Method- 
ist Episcopal, Lancaster, Pine St. Pres- 
byterian, Harrisburg, and First Method- 
ist Episcopal, Carlisle, were then led by 
the two distinguished directors in a 
group of twelve numbers. A dinner for 
the 250 participants followed the con- 
cert.

I &B. One-Act Play 
Is Typical Melodrama 

TRA GEDY IS PORTRAYED 

"V^nere the Cross Is Made" Is Sub- 
let of Dramatic Club Production 
Last Thursday. 

When the Wig and Buckle took an en- 
thusiastic, if not entire well-aimed, stab 
last Thursday evening at Eugene (Bo- 
geyman) O'Neill's one-act contribution 
Jo the lusty tradition of the Mellodramy. 
Where the Cross is Made, they exercised 
rema rkable restraint and not entirely 
disenginuous foresight, we suspect, in 
failing to advertise the affair. As a re- 
sult, an excessively large audience failed 
to materialize. Moral. God is indirectly 
merciful. 

However, those who did attend, duty 
compels us to aver, were privileged to 
witness as complete a collection of stock- 
company shocker devices as has ever 
been gathered under one gridiron. The 
heroine was then crying for succor, of 
course, and the customary ghost, multi- 
plied by three and abominably done up : 
also, just as things get pretty awful, the 
hero, slightly modified, dashed in, alas, 
not just in the nick of time, but rather 
a shade too late, thus turning the do- 
ings into Stark Tragedy— sad, very sad. 

Boyd Shaffer as Nat Bartlett went 
nuts admirably, and moreover, — before 
your very eyes — ladies and gentlemen, 
contriving in the meantime to give some 
excellent support to Esther Flom as his 
sister, Sue, a patreccentric gal with over- 
wrought ganglia, who, incidentally, 
played her role with a competence that 
is becoming noteworthy for its very rari- 
ty hereabouts of late. 

Elwood Needy, as Cap't. Barlett, par- 
onoiac heavy was heavy and Curvin 
Dellinger, in the role of the man who 
asks the leading questions, lit a match 
with commendable competence. 

As to the more technical work, the. 
P f ops, the lighting, make-up, and etc., 
they were uninspired, often rising to the 
lower levels of pitiability, and noteworthy 
chiefly for the amateur and haphazard 
fashion in which they were exhibited. 



Violinist To Appear

L. V. C. Library Lists 
Advancements Of Year 

Numbers of Readers and Books Read 
Show Decided Increase over Other 
Years. 



As we near another milestone in our 
college life, it is profitable to take a 
backward look to see just how much 
progress we have made during the past 
year in various aspects of our college 
course. 

One branch of L.V.C. that has made 
noteworthy advance is the library, that 
sanctuary where those with intellectual 
and other inclinations take refuge. For 
one reason or another this institution 
has been unusually popular this year, as 
those who have had opportunity for ob- 
servation have noticed how much more 
crowded the reading and reference 
rooms are. By delving into the records 
we unearthed the following figures to 
substantiate our observations. 

From the opening of school in 1934 
till May 1, 1935, the total number of 
readers in the reference rooms was 
16,523, whereas, for the corresponding 
period in 1935-36 the number was 18,469, 
an increase of 1,946, or about 11.8%. 
This growth of readers is not entirely 
accounted for by the increase in the 
present enrollment in the college and 
conservatory, which is about 4.4% great- 
er than last year's. 

Not only are more people coming into 
the library, but, what is more surpris- 
inr, they are using proportionately more 
books. Though statistics on the number 
of books used by students for study in 
the reference room are not infallible, 
fairly reliable figures reveal the amaz- 
ing increase of 28.9% (from 8,809 to 
11,352 in actual numbers, for those who 
may wish to check up on our calcula- 
tions). Evidently the student body must

mojski in Charge. 



Saturday, May 9th, is a day that will 
long be remembered by Juvenile Ann- 
ville, thanks to the interest of the class 
in sociology. Dealing with social service 
as more than an academic matter, the 
students in this group undertook a pro- 
ject that has made history in the opinion 
of a truck-load of enthusiastic young- 
sters and their parents. 

With the object of determining how 
much social service could be rendered 
by their effort, a committee of the class 
arranged for an outing at Twin-Grove 
park, twenty miles north of town on the 
Pinegrove-Lebanon Highway. Assuring 
themselves that the invitees included the 
underprivileged children of the town, 
invitations, in the form of tickets, were 
distributed, announcing the picnic with 
the happy concluding statement that the 
admission was "one broad smile". Kid- 
dies were invited to report in front of 
the Administration Building at ten-thirty 
o'clock. A half hour before the appoint- 
ed hour the happy ticket holders were 
on hand. At ten-thirty a spacious school 
bus, bulging with a load of fifty-five 
light-hearted and vocal guests, headed 
northwardly with exactly fifty-five pas- 
sengers working on lolly-pops and ra- 
diating their happiness abroad. Two 
car load of sociologists, including Bea- 
trice Zamojski, chair-lady of the com- 
mittee, Dorothy Balsbaugh, Eleanor En- 
gle, Sylvia Evelev, June Gingrich, Lu 
cille Hawthorne, Carolyn Roberts, and 
Barbara Sloane accompanied the happy 
cargo, not to mention a whole milk-can 
full of chocolate-milk, fruit, sandwiches, 
ice cream and what-not that constituted 
the day's comissary. 

The happy throng of children imme- 
diately took possession of Twin-Grove 
Park and ruled supremely for the re- 
mainder of the day. Miss Roberts proved 
a veritable Connie Mack in ruling the

Nine Bests Moravian; 
Loses To Susquehanna 

L. V. C. Baseballers Divide Honors in 
Two Non-League Contests. Scores: 
3-1 and 3-6. 



L.V.C.'s horsehide chasers took to the 
road last week, lacing Moravian at 
Bethlehem 3-1 on Friday, and losing to 
Susquehanna at Selinsgrove 6-3 the fol- 
lowing day. Both encounters were non- 
league games. 

Johnny Tindall, who is rapidly devel- 
oping into a hurler of the A-l class, 
served them up against the Churchmen; 
and while given poor support by his 
cohorts, carried on undauntedly to win a 
brilliant victory, allowing only six bin- 
gles, fanning six, and walking one. Ross, 
the opposing inoundsman, also pitched 
a sterling brand of ball, but his effec- 
tiveness was nullified by a wild pitch 
and a few timely hits by the visiting

Two Of Three Tilts 
Won By Racqueteers 

BISONS, LIONS BEATEN 



Strong Bucknell Team Bows, 5-4; 
Lions Fall by Same Score; F. & 
M. Wins, 9-0. 



Lebanon Valley's racquet-wielders won 
two scintillating victories last week by 
the same score of 5 to 4. The first vic- 
tim was the strong Bucknell squad, who 
visited the campus on Wednesday, while 
on Friday the Albright Lions wilted be- 
fore the invading Dutchmen's onslaught 
at Reading. The glory gained in these 
two contests was diminished somewhat, 
however, when the F. & M. Diplomats 
whitewashed the L. V. C. courtsters by 
taking all nine matches in a meeting ac 
Lancaster. 

Conceded little chance to top the highly 
rated Bisons from Bucknell, the Lebanon 
Valley netmen fought valiantly to deuce 
the score at four-all after the singles 
and two of the doubles encounters had 
been finished. Then with the outcome 
hinging on the final doubles match, "Hib" 
Nye and "Wib" Shroyer paired to clinch 
the victory by downing their opponents 
after three hard sets. 

This magnificent effort cost the ten- 
nis team much of its stamina, however, 
for the following day Coach Stevenson's 
charges proved easy victims for the F. & 
M. aggregation, the Valleyites dropping 
every match on the card. 

In the Albright match the Blue and 
White victory came as a result of sin- 
gles victories by Donmoyer, Ax, and 
Shroyer, and tandem wins by the com- 
binations of Ax and Donmoyer and De-

1938 Quittie Editor 
Discusses Prospects 

PLANS ARE OUTLINED 



Curvin Dellinger Is Interviewed by La 
Vie Representative Regarding Out- 
look. 



That a number of important innova- 
tions are being contemplated in the Quit- 
tie for next year was revealed by that 
annual's editor-elect, Curvin Dellinger. 
During the course of an interview grant- 
ed a La Vic representative, Dellinger 
talked briefly of the prospects for the '38 
Quittie, although, as he pointed out, any 
plans at this early date must necessarily 
be tentative and hazy. 

Upon one change, however, Dellinger 
declared himself resolved. The Quittie 
of next year will have a novel opening 
section. In years past this portion of the 
junior class production has been to a 
greater or lesser degree like the remain- 
ing pages of the volume. This coming 
year the introductory leaves will begin 
with a half-width page and taper by steps 
into the full-width sheet. 

Dellinger and his staff have deter- 
mined, in addition, that the tone of their 
book shall be informal, as befitting the 
record of campus memorabilia. But he 
was unable to indicate what theme would 
be used to make the volume an artistic 
unity, at this remote time. 

A new technical photographic process, 
called p koto-montage, it was stated, will 
likely be used, if the resources at the 
Quittie' s command are equal to it. By 
this recent discovery several pictures can 
be blended into one another, thus produc- 
ing extremely novel and striking com- 
posites. 

Speaking of pictures, Dellinger was 
able to state positively that campus scenes 
would be used as "dividers" between the 
customary sections and departments of 
the yearbook. All photographs, he indi- 
cated, will be duotone finished, that is, 
in a single shade, other than natural. The 
'38 Quittie, he declared, will maintain 
the same format as its predecessors, with 
of course, the number of pages being 
subject to the quantity of advertising, 
and to financial and other considerations. 
A departure is envisioned in the matter 
of covers, although again the final de- 
tails cannot be divulged. It is probable, 
though, that the paper will be glazed 
and of an ivory shade. 

Photography, needless to say, is the 
prime element in the Quittie's compila- 
tion, and as a consequence, the larger 
part of Dellinger's labors as well as those 
of his staff will be concerned with the 
taking and making of pictures. A high- 
ranking and creative photographer-ar- 
tist must be chosen. Dellinger stated

PHILLIPS ELECTED 
READERS' CLUB HEAD 



At the last meeting of the Readers' 
Club, Harold Phillips was elected presi- 
dent for the coming year. Maxine Earley 
has been chosen as new vice-president. 
Since it takes at least two weeks for the 
preparation of articles, there will be no 
further meetings this year, but the new 
officers are making plans for a more en- 
thusiastic and interesting club next year.

Race Prejudice 

Throughout the year unusual opportunities are presented to aid us as Lebanon 
Valley College students to crush within ourselves the inborn sense of race preju- 
dice. Annually some of the most polished and cultured teams met by L. V. C. 
debaters during the course of the forensic season are those representing Lincoln 
University. Missionaries of the church annually return from the four corners of 
the earth to speak to us on the particular problems of those people among whom 
they live, including peoples of every race on earth. Other speakers appear before 
us from time to time representing the interests of other nations and races. 

Last week a particular opportunity was offered when George Hernandez, 
authority on Negro folk songs, appeared before us in chapel. Mr. Hernandez cap- 
tivated his audience with his excellent interpretation of characteristic songs of the 
negro. 

The editor had a very pleasant experience in meeting the negro tenor quite by 
accident during one of those seemingly numberless hitch-hiking jaunts between 
Lebanon and Annville. Mr. Hernandez displayed some of his whole-hearted gen- 
erosity by driving ten miles out of his way, merely to accommodate an humble 
hitch-hiker. The editor came to a full realization of the complete and well- 
rounded culture of the Negro in as interesting a conversation over a five-mile ride 
as has been enjoyed in many years. 

We salute a cultured and refined gentleman, a man who is a real tribute to his 
race — George Hernandez. 



After Graduation, What? 

June will be here soon, and with it Commencement, when hundreds of Am- 
erican colleges will graduate thousands of young men and women, all with the 
blessing of Alma Mater and diverse degrees of academic preparation to make that 
blessing potent. 

Among these colleges is Lebanon Valley and among these thousands of 
graduates is our class of '36. Every member of this class is eager to take a non- 
trivial place in American life, as a teacher, a business man, or perhaps a grad- 
uate student in medicine, theology, or law,— and is eager to take that place with- 
, out delay. Every member of this class feels that the four years he has spent 
to get a baccalaureate degree entitle him to a chance immediately to show the 
worth of his higher education and the chance to realize a profit on his invest- 
ment in that higher education. 

These chances are pretty good. Lebanon Valley is at least average as con- 
cerns the ability of graduates to get positions. 1936 seems destined to be a better 
year, as regards job-finding, than any of the five or six years which preceded it. 
So comparatively speaking, there is little ground for complaint or fault-finding on 
the part of Lebanon Valley, class of 1936. 

But this leaves the question of how to obtain the best results in matching col- 
lege graduates to vacant positions. It seems inevitable that when 1937 comes, 
some 1936 graduates will be unemployed— or at least will be employed unsatis- 
factorily. How can such cases be reduced to a minimum number? To what 
measure is the college responsible for placing graduates in suitable positions? 
How much should the individual graduate take on his own shoulders? 

American colleges and universities have gone to increasing pains to find a 
becoming and profitable niche for the graduate. This has been especially notice- 
able in the recent "post-depression" days. Indeed, university posts of high 
academic distinction have been awarded to men on little basis other than their 
"contacts" and consequent ability to place students who work under them. Mai y 
colleges and universities, Lebanon Valley among them, have employment agencies 
or placement bureaus with systematic methods of classifying applicants and va- 



cancies and establishing a one-to-one correspondence between them. 

These activities are most laudable, — the solicitude of some institutions for 
their graduates is even touching. Surely it is only proper for a college to turn a 
job-seeking graduate in the right direction, and to provide him with advice and 
recommendations that will help him to settle himself where he should be settled. 
But it is distinctly bad, and unjust, for a student to enter college and work through 
four years to a degree, under the idea that the college will land him in a job 
without the least effort of his own. 

We believe the main responsibility for finding a position, as teacher, salesman, 
or graduate student, rests with the graduate himself, and that it should be chiefly 
by his initiative and effort that such a position be provided. The principal role of 
a college is to educate; it is not fair to saddle a college with the task of providing 
a place for each and every graduate. 

So, we respectfully suggest to the class of 1936 that the best preparation for 
a busy and profitable year 1937 is for them to stir their own resources to the ut- 
most, to look for every position worth consideration, and to persuade employers 
that the advantage of a college education in an accredited institution warrants an 
effective preference. 



Vox Populi 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

In days of old when knights were 
bolder than modern convention cares to 
admit, chivalry was a woman's chief 
protection from the ravages of the care- 
less male and gallantry, the distinguish- 
ing feature of every gentleman, but, 
alas, it doth appear that since the ladies 
doffed the shrinking violet attributes of 
their counterparts of the days of yore, 
they have seen fit to demand of the male 
that he preserve his former attitude to- 
ward them nevertheless, so that today 
gallantry is the distinguishing mark of 
every masculine poor fish whom woman 
ever hooked. 

This effusion is brought forth by the 
feelings engendered in us by a few in- 
stances of generous and thoughtful con- 
duct on the part of the gentler half of 
the species in the dining hall. For an 
instance, at a recent breakfast, three- 
quarters done with when this little inci- 
dent ensued, there was in all the dining 
room but one vacant chair — reserved 
with becoming thought fulness by a 
blonde belle dame sans merci for her de- 
mon lover who was languishing peace- 
fully all the while beneath the bedsheets, 
when one of the few polite young men 
hereabouts strolled in, and being in- 
formed with a heartless smile that the 
place — the only vacant place — was re- 
served, went glumly off to wait for the 
waiters' breakfast in spite of the fact 
that he needed the time thus lost to 
study some last-minute rush work for an 
eight o'clock test. We should like you to 
commend the dear little sweetheart who 
brought all this about for her high sense 
of fidelity to her boy friend. 

And, while handing out the roses, you 
might also give a few you may have left 
over to the gals who gather up all the 
available bread, butter, and sandwich- 
meat when every meal is about finished 
with one full swoop, and that before 
the very eyes of the starving males who 
try to smile bravely. Once our hunger 
got the better of our etiquette and we 
said to the charming young thing com- 
mitting the crime, "May I have a slice 
before you wrap it up?" "Why— we're 
having a little party tonight," she smiled 
back at us as she gave the napkin a last 
gentle pat and tucked the precious ca- 
lories away on her lap. We thought this 
little affair was particularly delicious. 

What we're getting at is this— we do 
not mind treating the ladies with cour- 
tesy and consideration. We even like t'> 
go out of our way a bit to be thoughtful 
in our attitude toward them, and we 
presume that none except the contro- 
verts on the female side of the fence 
would care to have it otherwise. But if 
they continue to demonstrate their ap- 
preciation of this attitude by such 
thoughtless and selfish gestures as the 
two we have described, we shall be 
obliged to get our backs up and do like- 
wise. We like to think that the gafs 
are leaning on us— whether they are or 
not— hut we intensely resent the impres- 
sion that they are using us, which, by 
their perverted attitude toward social 
conventions, they are doing. 

Archie, the Amarchist.

The game with Susquehanna was chief-

Jonah Davies. Davies, well-known as v 
slugging left-fielder, tied the slab for the 
first time in collegiate circles and, al- 
though beaten, pitched a great game, al- 
lowing only five bingles, one of them 
being a circuit clout. To top off this 
performance, the converted twirls set 
down eight men on strikes. Davies' only 
weakness was wildness, his five free 
passes to first resulting in several scores 
which gave the adversary the edge of 
victory. 

The Crusaders took the lead on a 
beautiful two-run homer off the bat of 
Valunis in the first inning and were 
never headed throughout the nine

Of All Things . . . 

Heinz is an amateur compared to us! 
Variety is of the essence. So, this week 
we give you our own Literary Review — 
of the La Vie writeup of the Clio-Philo 
Play. The Herr Doktor Spohn, in his 
little diatribe, has evidently taken the 
entire company, placed them upon the 
pan, and turned on all the burners. In 
observing the L. V. stage, our ruggedly 
individualistic friend views with alarm. 
We are all entitled to our opinions; 
hence, may be bestow a scallion, a par- 
ticularly fragrant one? «

Scoop ! Unbeknownst to us, Betty 
Kirkpatrick has been convalescing dur- 
ing the past week. In her hurry to dress 
for a dance, Betty clambered out of the 
bathtub and very imprudently backed 
into a seriously hot hot-water heater. 
According to latest reports, however, 
Betty is nc longer eating her meals ver- 
tically. All of which simply goes to 
prove the old maxim: that, in the end, 
things generally improve. 

* * * * 

The Geeps are in trouble. In fact, 
they are embarrassed ! When the treas- 
urers of Philo and Clio demand an ex- 
planation for the presence of a set-con- 
struction bill for "76 yards of Lingerie 
Ribbon," all they do is scuffle their feet 
awkwardly and incoherently mumble 
something about a "baywindow." Tsk, 
Geeps, tsk!

A cigar, Mr. Muth, is a gadget made 
of tobacco, cigar-shaped, tapering at 
one end, but stopping abruptly at its 
other extremity. Do you know, Brother 
Muth, why your cigar would not light,- 
even though you exhausted several box- 
es of matches in attempting to ignite 
the weed during the trip to Corning? 
Principally because you pushed the ta- 
pering end into your face. That is not 
done, suh, in the best cigar-smoking cir- 



cles. Or, as we French say, Us ne pas- 
aeront pas! 

* * * * 

It rained last Friday evening. Oh, so 
the Voice from the Gallery is inclined 
to disagree? Nevertheless, it was the 
proverbial rainy day for "BuBu" Hem- 
perl v, it would appear. For when Ticket 
Salesman Ted Loos sold him his ticket, 
"Hoop" dug out exactly two hundred 
pennies. We crave information, Hemp: 
Does your younger brother have a sav- 
ings bank? Is it a penny-bank? 

* * * * 

As we sat listening to a rumba ar- 
rangement of "Silver Threads Among 
the Gold," our own Operative T-66 came 
tearing into the room, wildly gasping 
that the long arm of the F. B. I. has fi- 
nally reached L. V. C. It seems that, for 
apparently no reason at all, Mr. J. Ed- 
gar Hoover has planted one of his min- 
ions on our utterly innocent campus. 
Secreting himself in one of Miller 
Sdhmuck's vest-pockets, our agent gog- 
gled when he observed, neatly pinned to 
the lapel (inside) of the Schmuck coat — 
guess what? A "Melvin Purvis Junior 
G-Man Badge" ! Hide your fingerprints, 
boys, until we find where he keeps his 
tommy-gun. 



L. V. C. LIBRARY LISTS 
ADVANCEMENTS OF YEAR 



{Continued From Page 1) 



be discovering the wealth of information 
that is available in the unpretentious 
volumes on the shelves, resources which 
too many of us do not know we possess, 
but which, if discovered and utilized, can 
make our studies not merely more lucid, 
but actually more enjoyable. 

As to outside reading, a correspond- 
ing increase is apparent: in regular cir- 
culation, that is, books that are charged 
for a month at a time, from 3,979 to 
4 343, or 9.1%; in "reserve" circulation, 



designating books that are assigned for 
class reference and are, therefore, al- 
lowed to be taken out of the library only 
during hours when it is not open, from 
1,090 to 1,346, or 23.5% increase. This 
seems to indicate that we are taking our 
professors more seriously when they sug- 
gest that we find out what "Jones" has 
to say on whatever subject happens to 
be under consideration. 

Since May of 1935 the library has add- 
ed 924 volumes to its store of books; 
these new books touch upon all fields of 
knowledge — pure fiction, as well as his- 
torical tales, scientific exploits, religious 
and philosophical reflections, psychologi- 
cal and sociological research. Some of 
the books are purchased, having been 
carefully selected by our capable libra- 
rian, Miss Myers, or by the heads of the 
various departments; others are received 
as gifts from interested friends. Such a 
gift was a valuable set of Lloyd Mif- 
flin's works, presented by Dr. Elias H. 
Sneath, a gift which is treasured be- 
cause many of the volumes are no longer 
in print. . 

The commendable cooperation of the 
student body in their attitude toward 
library rules and in treatment of books 
is sincerely appreciated. The librarian 
and her assistants are always willing to 
help and serve the library patrons.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1936 



Senators Are Elected 

For Next School Year 



The following men were elected by 
their respective classes to serve as mem- 
bers of the Men's Senate for the ensuing 
school year. 

Senior Dormitory Members: Duey lin- 
ger, Louis Straub, John Trego, Francis 
MacMullen, Theodore Loose. Senior 
Day Student Member: James Miller. 
Junior Dormitory Members: Adolph 
Capka, Curvin Dellinger, Dean Gas- 
teiger, Roger Saylor. Junior Day Stu- 
dent Member: John Marberger. Sopho- 
more Dormitory Members: Jonah Da- 
vies, Robert Brown. Sophomore Day 
Student Member: Clarence Lehman. 

These fourteen men, plus one member 
to be elected from next year's freshmen 
group, will compose the Senate for the 
school year 1936-37. Officers of the new 
Senate will be chosen from these sena- 
tors-elect at their first meeting which 
will be held next week. 

The present Senate has voted to build 
a walk from the post office to the south 
side of the archway of the men's dormi- 
tory, and is having the proposed path- 
way layed out and surveyed by the mem- 
bers of Professor Grimm's surveying 
class. The stone for the walk is being 
donated by the Millard Quarries through 
the courtesy of Mr. Williams. Professor 
Carmean is serving as chief adviser of 
this project. 



HERSHEY PARK BALLROOM 
SCENE OF ANNUAL PROM

job of Prom conducting too and deserves 
public recognition for the Prom — it 
was good looking, well timed, pleasant 
to take part in, and faultless in execution. 
Everything went very smoothly — the nite 
was a little warm but nevertheless very 
pleasant — the floor was excellent — the 
orchestra was good — the straines of 
Stomping at the Savoy certainly helped 
create that spirit of happy gaiety which 
was so evident. Everybody seemed to be 
unsually happy; there was not a single 
discordant note during the whole even- 
ing. 

In order to hand down to posterity 
(and for our own memories) something 
of this Prom's glory, the campus photo- 
graphers were on deck (on table-top, to 
be more accurate) snapping shots of the 
dancing as well as the Promenade itself. 

The only thing that wasn't at all 
popular with the revellers was twelve 
o'clock. Just like Cinderella all the boys 
and girls dashed away to dorms, homes, 
and week-ends right on the stroke of 
twelve; there were no glass slipper, 
lost in that early dash, but then I s'pose 
that if you asked our popular North 
Hall mother she'd tell you that boys 
don't need glass slippers these days.

that a conference of Boyd Shaffer, the 
business manager of the annual, with a 
faculty committee had been scheduled 
for that day, May 8, but failed to con- 
vene. The purpose of the conference, he 
affirmed, was to decide upon the official 
photographer for next year. As yet no 
contracts have been concluded, nor are 
any anticipated. 

On the other hand, Walter Ehrhart, 
the staff photographer, for his part 
promised some startling shots from his 
candid camera. Furthermore, despite thc- 
fact that it was impossible to interview 
the entire staff, it is safe to venture that 
each one is ambitious of contributing his 
best toward immortalizing the class of 
'38 in a distinctive and superlative year- 
book. The personnel of the staff follows : 

Editor-in-chief — Curvin Dellinger, Jr. 

Assistant editors — Jean McKeag, M. 



Louise Stoner. 

Literary editors — Martha I. Baney. 
Wanda L. Price, Theresa K. Stefan, Cal- 
vin Spitler. 

Sports editors — Ernestine Jagnesak, 
Roger Saylor. 

Typists — Elizabeth Kirkpatrick, Lloyd 
Berger. 

Business Manager — Boyd Shaffer. 

Assistant editors — Catherine Mills. 
Adolph Capka ; David Byerly, Dean Gas- 
teiger. 

Photographic editor — Paul Ulrich.

Photographer — Watler Ehrhart. 
Organization editor — Lena Risser.

/. R. C. Closes Season 

With Hike And Picnic 



Members of the International Rela- 
tions Club forgot their learned airs and 
argumentative tendencies last Tuesday 
evening when they hiked to a certain 
secluded spot south of Annville (Kinney 
seemed well acquainted with the place) 
and enjoyed a treat of cakes, ice cream, 
etc. Since this outdoor meeting was the 
last of the year, it was devoted entirely 
to pleasure. Mr. Kinney and Dr. Ste- 
venson made some appropriate remarks 
about the activities of the past year, 
and tentative plans for next year were 
discussed. The cabinet presented Dr. 
Stevenson with a fine military set in ap- 
preciation of the time and effort he de- 
voted to the group during the past year. 
At 8 o'clock, after three hours of ban- 
tering and fun-making, the group re- 
turned to the campus.

ball ground which was one of the main 
attractions of the day. Professors' chil- 
dren vied with those of families on re- 
lief to see which could catch the most 
bull-frogs for Miss Zamoj ski's labora- 
tory work and Old Sol joined in the 
spirit of the day in trying to contribute 
a brand of weather that was unknown 
heretofore on an early May day. Such 
fun. ('Twas good mammas didn't see 
the barefoot youngsters risking tomor- 
row's health for today's happiness, in 
wading the clear mountain stream.) 
Help ! Jane cut her big toe. Never mind, 
"Bunny" Zamoj ski got that all bandaged, 
and we are ready to go again. Dot Bals- 
baugh has just caged in two waxed cups, 
improvised for the purpose, the nth frog 
captured by George Washington Wag- 
ner. We're off again and now it's Mary 
Reigle who insists that Eleanor Engle 
come and see the kind monkey catch 
cooties off his friend. But "Miss Engle, 
does he really eat them" is a question 
that remains unanswered when Irene 
Geyer reports to Miss Evelev that she 
has tooth-ache. A few sympathetic words 
are all that are required in addition to 
superficial treatment. Lucille Hawthorne 
and June Gingrich are so busy blowing 
bumps and rubbing brush burns among 
the sliders and swingers on a dozen 
amusement devices that when a halt is 
called to permit stomachs to settle and 
face to be washed preparatory to an 
honest-to-goodness hot lunch in a real 
restaurant, the call for eats is a genuine 
relief. 

And now it's lunch time. Fifty-five 
kiddies seated in a cool dining-room, 
served by uniformed waitresses, and pret- 
ty ones too, is a sight to behold. The 
diners range in age from 4 to 15 years 
of age. Some have never eaten in a res- 
taurant before, are little timid, and can 
scarcely wait to tell mamma about the 
novelty. The sociology girls cruise 
around the hall, cut eats for the kiddies 
and see that every one is happy and well 
fed.

Muhlenberg Blanked 
In Allentown Battle 



PAUL 



BILLETT FEATURES 



Ace 



Moundsman Hurls One-Hit Ball 



As Valleyites Conquer Mules - By 
8-0 Count. 

L V. C.'s Flying Dutchmen added an- 
other sparkling diamond victory to their 
brilliant season's record by trouncing the 
Muhlenberg Mules at Allentown by an 
g. count last Saturday. 

p au l Billett permitted the foes one 
measly safety and fanned fourteen in a 
dazzling twirling exhibition while his 
mates continued their heavy clubbing to 
earner a dozen safe swats good for eight 
runs. 

Lebanon Valley's ace moundsman 
passed but one, and Kern's third-inning 
bingle was the only blow off his assorted 
,peed and curve-ball offerings. Only one 
Mule reached second base, and the hot 
corner hassock was untouched by any 
Muhlenberg baserunner's spikes through- 
out the nine innings of play. Only three 
Mules reached first, Billett's lone walk, 
Kern's hit, and the only L. V. C. error 
of the day giving the trio of foes their 
chances on the paths. 

The superb twirling performance of 
Paul Billett included no less than four- 
teen strikeouts, and only three fly balls 
reached the outfield all afternoon, indi- 
cating that the heaving of the L. V. C. 
right-hander was plenty effective. 

The Blue and White tallies were 
chalked up in the fifth, sixth, seventh, 
and eighth innings. Pitcher Paul Billett 
opened the fifth frame with a hit to left 
field and jogged all the way to third base 
when Matusa left the ball slip past him. 
Kroske's poke to right field sent Billett 
across the plate with the first run of 
the game. 

Capka opened the sixth with a two- 
tase knock to deep center and pranced 
home with tally no. 2 on John Tindall's 
s °lid single through short. 

Kress' safety and steal of second, 
^ a 'ph Billett's fielder's choice, Tracy's 
err °r on Capka's drive, and Tindall's 
second hit of the day accounted for two

Ladies Auxiliary Holds 
Final Meeting of Season 



The Ladies' Auxiliary met for the last 
meeting of the year on Thursday after- 
noon, May 14. Approximately twenty- 
four members were present to hear the 
reports from the officers of work done 
during the past year and to discuss pro- 
jects for next fall. The Auxiliary has 
proved itself to be a considerable asset 
to the college through the constructive 
work that it has done on campus. Its 
main project for this year was redeco- 
rating the day students' rooms in South 
Hall to make them more comfortable 
and attractive for the girls. Next year 
the group is planning to make a number 
of improvements in North Hall parlor. 

Mrs. Green, as hostess, served refresh-

Racqueteers Defeated 
By Dickinson Foes 

Netmen Drop 5-4 Decision in Match 
Contested on Annville Courts Last 
Saturday. 



Lebanon Valley's tennis squad played 
host to Dickinson on Saturday after- 
noon, the outcome being another one of 
those stereotyped '5 to 4 decisions, with 
the Valleyites this time on the short 
end. 

Just as in their match with Bucknell, 
the Annville collegians coped with their 
adversaries on even terms until the final 
doubles match. Then, with the issue t-> 
be decided, "Jake" Uinberger and 
"Sheen" Shenk paired up against the 
duo of Wertz and Miller and, after los- 
ing the first set by a 6-2 count, came 
back fighting to take the second by the 
same figures. In the crucial third set 
the Blue and White pair arrived at set 
and match point only to fall before the 
rallying charge of the visitors, the set 
going to a 7-5 score. 

To account for L.V.C.'s victories, Cap- 
tain Donmoyer, Dick Ax, and Phil De- 
Huff all won their singles engagements 
with little difficulty, while Donmoyer and 
Ax copped the home team's only doubles 
decision. 

The summaries — Dickinson 5; Lebanon 
Valley 4. 

Singles 

Donmoyer, L.V.C., defeated Mcin- 
tosh, Dickinson, 6-0, 6-4.

Last night the '35-'36 La Vie Staff held 
a banquet at the Green Terrace with all 
scribes in attendance. Professors Struble, 
Wallace, Light, and Lynch were also in- 
vited. 

Affairs got moving at seven o'clock, 
the hour set for the banquet, despite pre- 
dictions by veteran La Vie banqueteers 
that nothing could possibly start hap- 
pening before nine, which, they claimed, 
is the customary hour to start a seven 
o'clock La Vie banquet. The same sav- 
ants later sought to account for the er- 
ror of their ways by claiming that the 
new insistance on deadlines and the gen- 
eral air of precision with which the 
staff first began to be infused during the 
regime of ex-editor Dave Yake has made 
the staff more accustomed than the cal- 
culations allowed to the belief that, when 
the blue-pencil department says "Inter- 
view the Zulu Chieftain," it means "In- 
terview the Zulu Chieftain," and like- 
wise, when it says "Seven", it means 
"Seven." 

However their majesties of the edit- 
orial board quite cheerfully condescended 
to rub elbows both literally and con- 
versationally with the menials who popu- 
late the editorial room, and all proceed- 
ed merrily apace what with the feature 
writers exhausting their stock of repar- 
tee against the double bombardment of 
the sports writers and the copy readers. 
The dramatic critics attempted here and 
there to insert a random tour de jorce 
or so, but were generally squelched by

Seniors Reveal All To Reporter 



° Urs of fellowship and fun. 



The "army" of the class of 1936. which 
is approaching the end of its four-years* 
training period on L.V.C.'s campus, is 
now eager to "go forth and do battle." 
This preparation gives them a consid- 
erable advantage over those who have 
not been so fortunate as to secure it; 
however, this modern generation, taught 
also by the bogey known as "hard 
times," is not so imprudent as to sup- 
pose that a college diploma any longer 
guarantees a job. 

Though we do not pretend to have the 
gift of prophecy, we should like to pre- 
dict as accurately as we can the future 
activities of our seniort. Among the 



practice-teachers five have already been 
elected to promising positions. Marian 
Leisey will teach Latin in Morgantown 
High School, and Louise Gillan and 
Boyd Sponaugle will fill vacancies in 
Hummelstown High, the former to teach 
social studies and French, the latter to 
be instructor in science and coach of 
athletics; of the conservatory students, 
Irma Kieffer and Samuel Harnish have 
been placed, Irma to supervise music in 
Williams'town, Sam in Paradise Town- 
ship Schools. (We suppose Sam's theme 
song will he, "Where Am I, Am I in 
Heaven?") John Loos will be assistant

Girls Plan Inter-Class 

Tennis for Next Fall 



Now that May Day and its attendant 
activities are over and only happy mem- 
ories of that highly successful enterprise 
remain, those graceful lassies who fur- 
nished a large proportion of the dances 
are turning their attention to other forms 
jf exercise. The chief interests of the 
girls' gym classes, under the tutelage of 
Miss Henderson, are now baseball and 
tennis. 

Since the season is almost closed, and 
exams are looming on the horizon, even 
these sports are losing their interest. 
However, the season next fall will open 
with a bang, first with an inter-class 
tennis tournament and then with the 
regular hockey program. According to 
Miss Henderson, the prospects for a win 
ning hockey team are extremely promis 
ir.g.

FINAL MEETING FOR CLUB 



Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher 
Notes Campus Changes 

Catalogue Alterations and Additions 
Explained by Assistant to the Presi 
dent of the College. 



In the 1936 issue of the catalogue of 
Lebanon Valley College appear a num- 
ber of changes and additions with which 
students should be familiar. Some of 
them will affect the individual student 
directly, while others are matters of 
more general interest with which he 
should be familiar. 

Taking these changes or additions as 
they come, we note first on page 22 the 
announcement of the Phi Alpha Epsilon 
Honorary Scholarship Society which was 
organized a year ago. This will be of 
interest particularly to the better stu- 
dents as it sets before them a goal to- 
ward which to work and an honor for 
which to strive. As the Society becomes 
better known, membership will become 
one of the most coveted honors on the 
campus. 

Another addition appears on page 27, 
the announcement of the anti-hazing re- 
gulation. This rule was passed by the 
faculty about a year ago and has been 
observed during the academic year just 
closing. Lebanon Valley is to be com- 
mended upon this forward step in stu- 
dent government and too much praise 
cannot be given to the loyalty shown by 
the Men's Senate and the W. S. G. A., 
together with the whole student body, 
in observing this regulation during the 
past year. Within the last two weeks 
another college of Pennsylvania has 
taken a similar step. 

On page 29 appears a change which 
may not be particularly welcome to the 
student body which is in line with pro- 
gress and will no doubt meet with loyal 
cooperation on the part of students and 
parents. This concerns the increase of 
$25.00 in the annual charge for tuition 
and fees, which raises the charge from 
$250.00 to $275.00. This increase was 
made in order not only to overcome our 
annual deficit, which last year amounted 
to $8,586.87, and this year to date $2,- 
738.06, but also to enable the college to 
provide for the students certain addi 
tional facilities and advantages which 
have hitherto been lacking or inadequate. 
It is to be noted, however, that even

Unusual Papers Presented. Club 
Soaks up Struble Punch. Other 
Vacant Offices Filled. 



Convening in final session Thursday 
evening, the clan of the mystic Green 
Blotter assembled at the invitation of 
Dr. and Mrs. Struble in their home to 
elect officers and speak mutual farewells. 

To initiate proceedings, head scop 
Louis Straub declared that, as per 
Green Blotter custom, he would remain 
temporary chairman to conduct the 
nomination and election of next year's 
officers until the head scop to succeed 
him had been chosen. Straub himself 
persisted in declining a second term upon 
being named. The tellers, Sylva Har- 
clerode and Helen Netherwood, after a 
short space emerged from the heap of 
ballots to announce Maxine Earley as 
next year's master of ceremonies and 
chief henchwoman. 

More difficulty attended on the attempt 
to elect a scribe, or keeper-of-the-word- 
horde in the coterie vernacular. Arbiter 
Straub, after a deadlock between Sylva 
Harclerode and Clifford Barnhart for 
the position, suggested that both be 
made co-keepers of the minutes and 
whatever there should be to keep. 

Miss Earley, in her new capacity, 
promptly called for a reading of the 
manuscripts prepared by those present. 
Miss Harclerode, as the first of two 
short poems, related a bit of an episode 
which concerned an undesired, old-style 
baby's cradle being auctioned away and 
its belated purchase by a blushing young 
man. "Just Dust", her second offering, 
lamented the centrifugal force in things 
and the inevitable decay of all that is 
most cherished. 

. Miss Netherwood; seated next on the 
sofa, presented a cross-section of indus- 
trial life under the title, "The Wonder 
of Steel", in which a young secretary 
saves five thousand dollars for her chief 
by withholding inadverantly a tele- 
gram, and receives praise instead of the 
expected dismissal.

New Deal? 



The members of the new Senate, who took up the reins today, are to be con- 
gratulated and honored upon their selection by the male students. Let them con- 
stantly bear in mind, however, that the attendant responsibilities, both collectively 
and individually, are of immense proportions. As a layman reflects his Church, 
or as a buck private unwittingly represents his platoon, so our "fifteen good men 
and true" will be looked upon during the coming year as models of leadership, 
behavior, and common sense. Mr. Unger is well qualified for the / big job given 
him, inasmuch as he is the possessor of the three aforementioned graces to an 
outstanding degree. A better choice could not have been made. 

But the president cannot swing the job by himself; he needs the combined 
efforts of his group — the unstinted backing of the entire Senate. An outstanding 
prerequisite to any successful governing is unity. 

The Senate, according to President Unger, will continue in the policy of 
vigorous construction. The activities of the past year were fraught with the perils 
of experimentation, but in the coming year this very experimentation will bear 
fruitage in the form of added wisdom (we hope). As a result, a few of the rules 
discarded at the beginning of last year will be reinstated. Among them are the 
freshmen date and dink rules. Still the Senate will assume the role of a preventive 
rather than a punitive body, considering the business of handing out penalties as 
secondary to that of setting examples and assisting collegiate misfits to adjust 
themselves to a sensible program. 

Although we admire the improvements effected in the boys' day student room, 
we bitterly deplore the lack of cooperation on the part of a few individuals who 
obviously lack the normal quota of human decency and self-restraint. A college 
of good standing is scarcely the place for the type of nincompoop who experiences 
an ecstatic thrill in tossing rubbish on the floor and smashing fixtures. It is to be 
hoped that this "bodacious" element will, for the most part, be graduated this 
spring, as it has been the cause of much concern, not only to the Senate, but also 
to all the self-respecting day students during the past year. 

Another objective, as Mr. Unger points out, will be to instil into the minds of 
the dormitory students a proper regard for the "Y" room. Here again is the ne- 
farious element to contend with. Why a smashed table should look better than a 
whole one, or why newspapers should be shredded and tossed about, is a question 
in our mind still thirsting for an answer. Here, too, are in abundance the maga- 
zines and light bulbs which are to be had, not for a song, (that would be too 
honest) but for the stealing, not only the poor and needy will we always have 
with us, but also the student scofflaw whose fingers are longer than his vision. 

The meeting of situations such as these will constitute some serious, challeng- 
ing work for the Senate next year. The men elected for the positions are without 
exception of excellent character and without doubt capable of fulfilling their job. 
The Senate deserves the whole-hearted support of the entire student body and the 
student body expects the Senate to do their job and to do it well. 



ALUMNI NOTES 



The Annville Alumni met May 13 to 
effect an organization. The speakers at 
the meeting were Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, 
Or. U. S. Rupp, of Baltimore, and H. 
Lenich Myers. J. Gordon Starr was 
elected president, and Adam Miller was 
elected secretary-treasurer of the new 
organization. V. Earl Light was chosen 



to be the Annville representative to the 
Alumni Council. There were 37 alumni 
present at the meeting. 

» # * * 

Earl E. Hoover, of the class of '34, 
has accepted a position as biologist for 
the New Hampshire Fish and Game De- 
partment. He is now residing at 291 
Pleasant Street, Concord, New Hamp- 
shire. 



Even to attempt to explain the type 
of girl I would choose for a wife seems 
futile at the present time. During these 
plastic years and this final stage of de 
velopment, the young males generally 
assume an air of self-confidence and 
wisdom with the appearance of a gra 
duate of the "school of hard-knocks." 
While in this stage of puberty the 
young man looks upon the young woman 
in a different manner than he did in 
childhood or as he will, I believe, when 
he reaches a serious stage of manhood. 
I have found that a group of men can 
not see a girl pass without making slight- 
ing remarks about the "frills," and 
whether she could show one "a good 
time" or not. 1 do not claim to be inno- 
cent of such behavior, but I am not in 
as dire need of cleansing as many of 
my associates are. On the few times that 
I have indulged in such a "revealing" 
conversation, I believe it was merely an 
attempt to assert that assumed "ex- 
perienced" attitude, which is the case 
ninety per cent of the time. 

If I ever should marry, which 1 
heartily doubt, I am certain it would be 
for love, and love only. But upon re- 
viewing my love life, I realize that I 
was modeled for the typical "confirmed 
bachelor." I have had but one secret 
love in my life ; and secret it was, for 
the girl was not aware of my affections ; 
at least I never told her. The strange 
thing about my affair was its existence. 
I was madly in love for six long years, 
my grade school days, and never once 
did I assert myself. We became sepa- 
rated in high school, unfortunately; and 
my one and only love flame ended. I 
have always prided myself on my choice, 
for my love began at the age of five, and 
the object of my affection was voted the 
best looking girl in our graduation class 
twelve years later. 

I am sorry to say that I do not thrill 
at the sight of a beautiful girl, which 
should be the normal procedure. Pos- 
sibly the breath which smothered my 
one love flame also blew away my ap- 
preciation of the fairer sex. At any 
rate, I have not since found any girl 
who has meant more to me than just 
company or another date. This attitude 
of utter indifference sometimes makes 
me feel lonesome, and I fear for my own 
safety. Woe to the first girl who arouses 
a spark of light in my sleeping soul; 1 
believe I should marry her on the spot, 
with or without consent. 

A mixture which M cannot tolerate is 
girl, tobacco, and drink. I have never 
gone with a girl who smokes, much less 
a girl who drinks. Although I have 
tasted both, I have Spent only the price 
of one pack of cigarettes on such luxu- 
ries. If I do not indulge in such habits, 
surely I should not keep the company of 
a girl who did. Considering that ap- 
proximately forty of the young women 
are good looking and considering that ten 
per cent smoke or drink, I have thirty 
per cent from which to choose. 

Some young men have expressed the 
desire for "an old-fashioned girl like 
dad married." They may have them! 
Not to intimate tha,t anything was wrong 
with our mothers; but any girl who 
has the outward appearance of the typi- 
cal "old-fashioned girl" is not usually 
the object of modern courtship. Barring 
possibly five per cent more leaves twen- 
ty-five per cent eligible. 

The gold-digger is one of the newest 
and worst curses of our modern age. I 
have heard many stories of the profes- 
sional type, but 1 have had contact with 
merely the beginners. The girl who has 
the "gimmies" or who always orders the 
highest priced-dish on the menu during a 
dance intermission i s the chief ; source of 
the gray hairs 



ineligibles, approximately ten per cent, 
leaving fifteen per cent to appease my 
thirsting heart. 

I could not care for a girl who had no 
interest whatsoever in sports, but I have 
always steered clear of the mannish girl 
who lives just for her sports. I sympa- 
thize with any poor man married to a 
powerhouse of muscle and brawn. An- 
other five per cent eliminated leaves ten 
prospective wives out of every one hun- 
dred. 

Another unbearable type of woman- 
hood is the meek and mild kind who 
answer "Yes, dear" to everything you 
say. A little bit of backbone should be 
expected even in the weaker sex. The 
other extreme is the type which attempts 
to be the head of the house. Eliminating 
five per cent for these two cases leaves a 
mere five out of every one hundred. 

Out of this five per cent of most per- 
fect womanhood I doubt if I could find 
even one who would so much as wipe 
her feet on me. If my efforts prove fu- 
tile, I shall retire to the hills near some 
prospering summer resort, establish my 
hermitage and spend the remainder of 
my days selling to the summer guests 
dime pictures of the "forgotten man."

tive League Win by Score of 1 3-3; 
Tindall Twirls. 



Lebanon Valley's slugging diamond 
aggregation registered its fourth consec- 
utive Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate 
League contest by cannonading two 
Drexel twirlers all over the lot to land 
a 13-3 decision over the Dragons on the 
home soil last Friday afternoon. 

Johnny Tindall manned the mound for 
L.V.C. and coasted to victory behind 
his heavy-hitting mates. The former 
Princeton Prep star allowed eight well- 
scattered hits, fanned five, and walked 
but one. 

Herb Raynes was the opening Drexel 
heaver, hut lasted only one-third of the 
first frame, during which time two 
walks, three hits, and some heady base- 
running on the part of the Flying Dutch- 
men accounted for four runs. Paul Bil- 
lett's long three-base drive to deep left- 
center sealed Raynes' doom, Coltart as- 
suming the pitching duties for the Dra- 
gons. 

The latter moundman managed to re- 
main on duty for the rest of the action, 
although he was nicked for fourteen hits 
and walked five to allow nine more Blue 
and White tallies. The four-run fourth 
inning was the biggest run parade en- 
joyed at Coltart' s expense, the Valley- 
ites batting around in this session. 

Blue and White batting averages were 
greatly increased in the hitting bee. Tin- 
dall, Kroske, and Sheesley led the at- 
tack with a trio of safeties apiece, in 
each case an extra-base hit being includ- 
ed. Paul Billett slapped out the fourth 
L.V.C. extra-base hit, the triple which 
hastened Raynes' first-inning exit. Tin- 
dall and Sheesley hit three out of five, 
Kroske three out of four, P. Billett two 
out of three, and Jonah Davies one out 
of two. 

A large crowd of fans turned out fo- 
tlie game and saw their Blue and Whiiv 
favorites display real championship ball 
in overwhelming the Drexelites.

supervisor of boys in the Ernest Will- 
iams Orchestra and Band School, New 
York, during the summer. Virginia 
Goodall and Kathleen Pool will work in 
a hotel in Massachusetts. Miss Goodall 
may keep singing engagements with the 
Harrisonians, also. Samuel Harnish will 
continue teaching instrumental classes 
in the Hershey Schools during the vaca- 
tion, .lack Schuler, E. John Zettlemoy- 
er, and Robert Sausser will play in a 
dance orchestra at Rehoheth Beach, Del- 
aware. 

All the teachers-elect have completed 
their practice-teaching either in the 
Annville or Hershey schools. Others with 
similar training are still hopefully try- 
ing to get positions, and Dr. Reynolds 
assures them that prospects are much 
brighter this year. 

The business students also seem to be 
orienting themselves, Fred Gruber, John 
Davis, Albert Anderson, William Kirk- 
patrick, and Paul Kuhlman having rath- 



er definite plans for the future. We 
hear that in some cases the problem is 
not what to do, but which. With such 
men in the business world old man De- 
pression shouldn't have much of 1 
chance. 

Many of the seniors contemplate 
further study, either to continue present 
interests or to develop different ones. 
Alvin Grove has secured a graduate as- 
sistantship at the U. of Mexico in the 
department of biology, and Robert Cas- 
sel, a scholarship at Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity, as mentioned in a former issue 
of La Vie. Francis Bauer, Ben Cohen, 
and Lewis Frank plan to enter medical 
school in Philadelphia, and we hope the 
plans of all of them materialize. Among 
the scientists of the fair sex, Lela Eshle- 
man says she would like to enter a 
nurses' training school. 

Bonebrake Theological Seminary may 
anticipate great things from Calvin Re- 
ber, Homer Kendall, Paul Miller, James 
Beamesderfer, Mark Hostetter, and Mil- 
ler Schmuck, who plan to matriculate 
there in the fall. 

Dorothy Grimm, after finishing grad- 
uate work in English and German at 
Cornell this summer, will prepare for 
library work at Simmons. Mary Had- 
dox, Hazel March, and Dorothy Bals- 
baugh plan to attend summer schools 
also. Iva Claire Weiriek says she will 
enter Central Pennsylvania Business 
School next year, and Sylvia Evelev 
can't choose at present between taking 
up business or going to Russia to teach. 
When questioned, "Herr" Spohn gave us 
the mystifying reply that he and David 
Yake would probably "go into business"; 
it is rumored that the "business" is gro- 
ceries, though that is only hearsay. 

These are all the plans that have come 
to our attention. As to any secret "pros- 
pects," La Vie is not in a position lo 
reveal them. But, whatever your plans 
are, seniors, your Alma Mater wishes 
you luck in the most important work of 
all, the business of living.

the columnists. 

All persons who attempted to make 
speeches were quietly bound and gagged, 
except H. T. Lutz, telegraph and cable 
editor of the Baltimore Evening Sun, 
who regaled the college scribes with 
some rollicking newspaper anecdotes and 
a brief discussion of the technique of 
newspaper writing. 

A couple of chaps nevertheless con- 
trived to escape, thus giving those re- 
sponsible for affairs a bad moment or so 
— several times they almost began ora- 
tions of formidable proportions, but were 
effectually foiled by the Herr Doktor 
Spohn who stuffed large sections of the 
Pate de Foie Gras down their several 
eppiglotti just in the very nick of time. 
They struggled for a time, but soon saw 
the futility of it and proceeded to have 
as good a time as possible, diffidently 
watching the attempts of one of the 
more effusive ladies of the reportoriai 
room to describe the affair. She got as 
far as "Grand ladies in beautiful swish- 
ing gowns partaking of the delicious 
cuisine, and the merry bass laughter of 
men" when the forboding mien of the 
editor hove into her horrified view, 
whereupon she immediately decided that 
Ann Harding's acting was strangely 
enough, a far more suitable topic for 
talk. No reason was assigned. 

At eleven-thirty, despite the assurance 
of a department editor well-known in 
local journalistic circles that some one 
had poured ginger ale in the clock, and 
that therefore it was no proper arbitrat- 
or, it was regretfully ceded by the ma- 
jority present that it was after all a 
submarine clock and didn't really mind 
at all, so that all went home, and, of 
course, studied for exams.

Of All Things . . 

We start the windup column by de- 
manding the why and the wherefore of 
the neatly lettered sign found tacked up 
•in, North Hall's Y-room. Said sign crisp- 
ly stated something to the effect that, in 
the evening, the "blinds will not be 
drawn . . . co-eds will be held respon- 
sible." Theirs not to question why . . • 
etc: For, any "questioning-why" mere- 
:lv> elicits the response: "What would 
South Hall think? AVhat would West 
Hall think?" That's just what we've 
been telling mother. 

• 

We were among those present in cha- 
pel the other day when our cantanker- 
ous movie projector cranked forth "How 
to "March In and Out of Church," with 
an all star cast of dusky African gen- 
try. A pair of feet draped over the bal- 
cony railing called it "Carbon"— in three 
painless reels. But the prize capsule 
criticism came from Bob Kell, of the 
Tvoysville Kells. The Kell criticism: ". . 
Hie courtyard of the church was undis- 
turbed. When, suddenly, in walked three 
headless shirts, and a white linen suit.'' 
We contributed our dime gracefully; 
specifying definitely that the money was 
to be used in bringing us "Popeye," or 
«t least, "Betty Boop." 

# 

Why, Danny Bartolet, why did you 
have to break the top on the ice cream 
freezer? Yes, we know that it probably 
was an accident. But do you realize 
that we'll probably be served pie in- 
stead? And those pies always make us 
walk around in small circles "on ac- 
count of" we never know exactly what 
kind of pie we're eating! Anybody want 
to bet that last Thursday evening's was 
butterscotch? Danny, we hereby award 
you a leather medal with a wooden 
string. 

^Class," said Dr. Butterwick, ". 
just how long do you think the present 
depression will last?" The various stu- 
dents called upon, all pleaded "not guil- 
ty." The professorial eye swung upon 
"Bubu" Hemperly, and the question was 
repeated. A short pause. Then, hesi- 
tantly, from the Farley man: "Well . . . 
I'll tell you, Prof. . . . you see, I'm a 
Republican !" 

A long string of freight cars, pulled 
by one of the diminutive Reading thresh- 
ing machines, went clanking by, during 
the Drexel game last week. Came the 
sharp crack of the bat, and a long, slow, 
foul started its flight toward the passing 
train. Thompson started having hyster- 
ics. "Don't hit it," he yelped. "Don't 
hit that train !" he screeched, ". . . it 
might mean another five bucks off our 
breakage fees !" 

• 

Gayle Mountz, looking more than ever 
like something drawn by Petty, at the 
Guy Lombardo dance Saturday night, 
found herself in a situation of a type 
not listed by Emily Post. Halfway 
through the dance. Gayle was seen to go 
into a huddle with the other gals. The 
startled fellows next found themselves 
donors in the collection which was taken 
... a collection of pins. A short recess, 
and Gayle returned smiling broadly: the 
brown linen dress was no longer in dan- 
ger of falling off. Honeh-chile, may we 
suggest a zipper?

Curvin "Emily Post and Me" Delling- 
er spent twenty minutes at last night's 
La Vie soup snuffle wildly shrieking for 
a straw. The; puzzled piccolo puffer was 
having trouble— trying to get the last 
ounze of soup out of the cup in which 
it was served. Net result: bottoms up!

1937 QUITTIE NEWS 



The 1937 edition of the college 
yearbook, the Quittapahilla, is ex- 
pected to appear on the campus dur- 
ing the next week. Although the 
staff of the annual does not feel 
obliged to divulge information con- 
cerning the details of layout and de- 
sign which will feature this year's 
edition, it neverthless promises some- 
thing slighty different and unusual in 
the eagerly-awaited volumes. Appro- 
priate notices in regard to the distri- 
bution of the books will be posted as 
soon as delivery has been made on 
the campus. 



GREEN BLOTTER ELECTS 

EARLEY HEAD SCOP

Louise Gillan's "Exam Time" uncov 
ered the deep and devious processes 
coursing a small schoolboy's mind while 
mastering some historical facts concern 
ing Napoleon. Her composition was con 
structed upon the "stream of conscious 
ness" approach. 

Across the room William Clark, in 
turn, poured forth a poetic effusion which 
claimed origin in a stupor, this latter 
fact being evidenced, as Clark main 
tained, in the lines themselves. They fol 
low the wanderings of a lover sepa 
rated from his beloved to the point 
where he stumbles over her body lying 
uninterred in a marsh. 

A descriptive piece was read by Rob 
ert Long. He painted a scene for th, 
group of the district about Sisco, Califor 
nia, where he has travelled. A native of 
the region has returned, and as he 
ruminates upon his adventures since he 
first left, he is skillfully used to describe 
the Sierre Nevada mountains and the 
environing landscape. 

With the last of the manuscripts read 
and commented on, Mrs. Struble ap- 
peared bearing palatable punch and warm 
wafers to the delectation of the aspir- 
ing litterati. And in such a manner, ac- 
companied by talk and pleasantry, the 
Green Blotter marked another year of 
esoteric activity. 

This one, just past, is the fourth of 
its existence on the Lebanon Valley cam- 
pus. The cult of creative writers was 
organized in November of 1932 with pro- 
vision for sixteen members on its ros- 
ter. Of these, it was originally decided, 
and has since been observed, four shall 
be from each of the four undergraduate 
classes in the college. And, further, from 
each group of four, two shall be male 
and two female. 

In this way four vacancies occur at the 
beginning of every annual school term. 
All candidacies to vacancies are compe- 
titive, and members accede solely on the 
basis of manuscripts submitted to the 
club. Thus the group becomes the most 
selective and exclusive on the campus, 
with rigorous scriptorial standards as 
well as an accumulating wealth of secret 
tradition and memory, to which this last 
year has contributed.

DR. A. H. M. STONECIPHER 
NOTES CAMPUS CHANGES 



(Continued From Page 1) 



with the increase, the tuition at Lebanon 
Valley College is comparatively moderate. 

Added to the list of scholarships 
available to Lebanon Valley students 
which appears on page 34 is the Alice 
Evers Burtner Memorial Award Fund 
of $2,000.00, which has been granted to 
the college within the past year. This 
provides a scholarship of $100.00 to a 
member of the present Junior Class to 
be selected by the faculty upon considera- 
tions of scholarship, character, social 
promise, and financial need. The Fund 
is available during the coming year. 

For years freshmen pursuing the A. B. 
course have been required to choose be- 
tween Greek, Latin, and Mathematics, 
but in the new catalogue these subjects 
are not among the requirements as listed 
on pages 37 and 38. This leaves the 
freshman free to select some course in 
line with his interests and abilities from 
the following subjects: Education, For- 
eign Language (ancient or modern). 
History, Mathematics, or Science. It is 
considered that this will be an advan- 
tage not only to the students but also to 
the classes into which poorly prepared 
and uninterested students were forced 
by the former requirement. 

Due to the growing demand for social 
service workers an increasing number of 
students are interested in laying the 
foundation for service in this field. In 
order better to serve the needs of this 
class of students, the curriculum com- 
mittee outlined a course of study found 
on page 71, designed to present to the 
prospective student the resources of the 
college for this type of work and guide 
the student in his choice of courses. It is 
not a professional course, but a liberal 
arts course designed to give the student 
a broad foundation in the social studios, 
useful as a basis for graduate study or 
practical work in this field. 

President Lynch also reports that the 
petition of the students living in the 
Men's Dormitory asking for the renova- 
tion of that building was presented to 
the Finance Committee of the Board of 
Trustees. Favorable action was taken by 
the Committee which will recommend 
to the Board of Trustees that the Men'- 
Dormitory be given a thorough renova- 
tion during the summer months. 

in view of the progressive changes 
noted in the catalogue and the contem- 
plated plant improvement just mentioned, 
Lebanon Valley may look forward with 
confidence to one of the best years in its 
history. 

—A. H. M. Stomcipher, 
Assistant to the President
